Gloucester Police/Fire: Teen arrested on Good Harbor Beach

Gloucester Police/Fire

A Lexington teenager who confronted Gloucester police officers on Good Harbor Beach was arrested for disorderly conduct Thursday around 2:15 p.m.

According to the police report, officers were conducting alcohol and drug enforcement along Good Harbor. Police had previously dealt with two separate groups involving alleged drug violations, when they received another report of a large group drinking alcohol.

Police then confronted 19-year-old Cody Vendetti of Adams Street, who was asked to leave the beach.

According to the report, Vendetti continued to yell and swear toward police, disturbing other beachgoers in the process.

“It appeared he was putting on a show for his friends yelling, swearing and acting in a disorderly manner,” the report states.

After numerous attempts by officers to quiet him down, Vendetti was placed under arrest; other individuals in the group then apologized for his behavior, according to the police report.

Thursday at 8 p.m., police responded to Ed’s Mini Mart on Washington Street for a report of “kids” fighting outside the store and ultimately issued a criminal complaint against a Maine woman.

Police spoke with several people involved in the incident, and even watched a video that one onlooker has filmed with his phone.

After carrying out interviews and viewing the video, police then informed Krystle Henderson, 25, of Augusta, Maine, that she is facing a criminal complaint for assault and battery.

A man from Rocky Neck Avenue was riding his motorized scooter on Thatcher Road Thursday around 3:30 p.m. when a bug hit him and went into his ear. The Fire Department’s rescue squad transported the man to Addison Gilbert Hospital.

Another scooter operator was cited on Pleasant Street Thursday at 9 a.m.

In that case, Jocimar Teixeira, 31 of Prospect Street could not produce a license to operator the vehicle, a passport, or a learner’s permit, according to the police report.

The scooter was towed as it is unlicensed, a criminal complaint is being sought against Teixeira for operating an unlicensed vehicle on the public way as well as operating an unregistered vehicle.
