Warrant arrest – Brockton resident Jose Quinones, 24. On June 22, police were dispatched to Dummer and St. Paul Streets for a reported assault in progress, two female victims in a black Honda Accord. Witnesses described a Hispanic man in dark jeans, a black T-shirt and carrying an orange backpack, who they say smashed a window with his backpack, causing lacerations after an argument over the sale of a laptop. One of the women said that Quinones was intoxicated at the time, slammed the car door three or four times, and then smashed the window. They say he was extremely angry until he realized what he had done, and then he fled. On Tuesday evening, he came into the police station to speak with officers about the incident. He was arrested and charged with assault-and-battery with a dangerous weapon and malicious damage of property.

- Disordely person – Lombard, IL man, Scott Cave, age 29. Police responded to a 12:30 a.m. fire alarm at Holiday Inn on Beacon Street, where an officer reports he found a cloud of some kind coming from the rear of the hotel. He helped guests--over 360 people, many of whom were in town for a convention and a gathering--evacuate, and found he had difficulty breathing. The fire department determined that it was not in fact smoke, but the contents of a fire extinguisher. Officers found the missing extinguisher and knocked on a room several times before raising two men, Cave and a colleague, who said they were in town to work out details of a contract job, and had been drinking at a Sox game. They returned to the hotel around 12:15 a.m., looking for the hot tub which was closed, and "horsed around" on the large chessboard for a while. After the colleague had gone to the room, he says he heard the fire alarm, and moments later Cave came in and told him not to worry about it. Police determined that Cave was intoxicated, and he was arrested and charged with causing a false fire alarm, disorderly person, disturbing the peace and malicious destruction of property.

- Possession with intent to distribute – Roxbury man, 21-year-old Ricardo Navarro.

The driver, Navarro, was unable to provide registration for the vehicle. When they searched Navarro, they found he was carrying a plastic bag containing five smaller bags of what appeared to be marijuana. He was arrested and charged with possession of a Class D drug with intent to distribute, possession within a school area, driving an uninsured and unregistered vehicle, and attaching plates--as the RMV database had a "Swap" status on the plate, but no vehicle it was going to.
- Evading a cab fare – Boston man, Arev Mock, 22. At about 2 a.m., a cab pulled up alongside a police cruiser, and asked the officer's help with a fare who he says wouldn't get out of the cab, and was refusing to pay his fare. Police say he was immediately belligerant and tried to walk away from officers. Yelling and swearing, he allegedly hit a female officer on the forehead with his finger, police then attempted to arrest the man, but he resisted. Police pepper sprayed him, and got him into a cruiser, where he continued to yell, spit and flail--even as EMTs tried to examine him. Mock was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, resisting arrest, four counts of assaulting a police officer, and cab fare evasion.
