Gloucester District Court: Man gets continuance on pepper spray case charges

A Beverly man pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct in Gloucester District Court on Monday, but related charges of resisting arrest and assault and battery on a police officer were continued without a finding for a year.

Judge Joseph Jennings continued the charges, brought against Daniel Martin, 21, of 33 Arthur St., Beverly, until October 2013. He also fined Martin $150 for the disorderly conduct charge.

Martin was arrested after police responded to a report of a fight on Spring Street in August. Martin tried to stop police from arresting another man, and when police told him to stop and tried to arrest him for disorderly conduct, he shoved two officers. Police used pepper spray to subdue him before handcuffing him.

Jennings also continued with a finding a marijuana possession charge brought against a Gloucester man.

He continued the charges brought against Jose Leland-Bautista, 27, of 5 A Langsford St. in Gloucester for a year.

Police arrested Bautista on possession charges after they stopped him for speeding on Washington Street. When they stopped him, they found several bags of marijuana in his truck.

An assault and battery charge brought against a Gloucester man was continued without a finding in court on Friday.

Judge Joseph Jennings continued the charge brought against Christian Allen, 33, of 166 Magnolia Ave., for a year, and ordered him to undergo a mental health evaluation.

Police charged Allen after he allegedly shoved a 13-year-old off his bike on Sargent Street. When police found him, he told them the boy was weaving in and out of traffic and cursed at him.

A disorderly conduct charge brought against a Gloucester man was dismissed and the resisting arrest charge he faced continued without a finding for six months.

Jennings dismissed the disorderly conduct charge, brought against Nicholas Pszenny 28, of 27 Dodge St. on payment of $150 in court costs. His resisting arrest charge was continued without a finding until April 2013.
