Lawrence Man Charged after Assaulting Officer
by Andrea Ganley-Dannewitz A Lawrence, MA, man faces first-degree assault charges after he allegedly struck a Salem police officer in the mouth. On Friday, September 17, around 6 p.m., a Salem police officer on patrol in the area of Route 28 and Cluff Crossing Road passed a vehicle traveling southbound with a passenger hanging out the window yelling something in the officer’s direction. While the officer observed this happening, he saw the same vehicle stop at a green light at the intersection of Cluff Crossing Road and Route 28, preventing traffic from moving through the intersection. According to Deputy Police Chief Shawn Patten, the officer
activated his emergency lights and attempted to stop and make contact with the vehicle and its occupants. “The vehicle did not initially stop, but did finally come to rest in
the Shaw’s Supermarket’s parking lot near the rear entrance. Upon making contact with the occupants, the officer advised them of the
dangerousness of hanging out the window of a moving vehicle. The driver of the vehicle refused to produce his driver’s license and became very belligerent,” Deputy Chief Patten said. Apparently, the driver, identified as Darryl Braswell, 25, of
Lawrence, finally did exit the vehicle, but still refused to produce his license for the officer. The officer noted to Braswell that he appeared to have a wallet in his front pants’ pocket. The suspect began to reach into his pocket, but then suddenly elbowed the officer in the mouth. Patten says a brief struggle then ensued between Braswell and the officer, but that Braswell was taken into custody without further incident. Patten said the officer did receive a fat lip, but refused medical treatment at the scene. Braswell was processed and later released on $250 cash bail pending arraignment at Salem District Court next month. Braswell has been charged with disorderly conduct and first-degree assault.
