The following are excerpts from the Bourne Police Logs dated Wednesday, April 29, through Tuesday, May 5.
Wednesday, April 29
At 5:56 PM, police received a call from a resident of Colony Avenue that he had just been assaulted by a neighbor. Police responded to the scene and notified Bourne Fire/Rescue about the incident. Firefighters went to the scene and evaluated the person who called police. The individual did not have to be transported. Both men were told to resolve their differences in court, if necessary.
Thursday, April 30
Police conducted a traffic stop at 1:35 AM on Scenic Highway. An officer on patrol saw the driver of a green 2008 Lincoln Navigator swerving in and out of lanes on the highway. The officer activated his cruiser’s emergency lights, but the driver did not stop at first. Eventually, the driver pulled over, and as the vehicle was rolling to a stop, the driver reclined his seat and moved into the rear seat. With the car stopped, the officer spoke with the suspect and a female passenger. The suspect, at first, claimed that someone else had been driving. The officer determined that the suspect’s driver’s license was under suspension. He was cited for operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license, marked lanes violation, failure to stop for police and negligent operation of a motor vehicle. Police did not identify him because he has not been arraigned yet. The female passenger also did not have a valid driver’s license, so someone with a valid license had to come and drive the vehicle away.
