Gloucester District Court: City man gets continuance for resisting arrest

Gloucester District Court

A Cherry Street man, arrested in August on charges of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct, had his case continued for the resisting charge, while the disorderly conduct charge was dropped.

Patrick D. Curran, 25, had been arrested Aug. 17 about 4 a.m., after someone reported him as a man passed out on a Washington Street sidewalk, near Whistle Stop Way, according to a police report.

Curran had become aggressive after police woke him, and during a struggle with police, an officer “unintentionally” struck Curran on the head with a flashflight, according to the report.

The disorderly conduct charge was dismissed at the state’s request, but Curran admitted to sufficient facts on the resisting arrest charge, but that charge continues without finding until June.

Judge Joseph Jennings ordered Curran to remain alcohol free, and Curran can be subject to random alcohol screenings. Curran must also pay a victim-witness assessment fee of $50.

A Chelsea man arrested in Rockport Monday on charges of disorderly conduct was arraigned the same day, but the charge will be dismissed if he pays the court costs of $150 by Jan. 25.

Robert E. Bouche, 26, was arrested when he became aggressive after police notified him that he could not drive because his license was suspended.

Bouche allegedly told police he would beat up an “old man” who had reported him as driving erratically, according to the report. Bouche also told police to just arrest him, according to the report.
