Man, 18, Charged After Scuffle at Dunkin' Donuts
Bradley A. Starr of 4 Carriage Trail faces charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
A Barrington man, 18, faces charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest after he caused a disturbance in the Dunkin’ Donuts parking lot late last Friday, Aug. 31.
Bradley A. Starr, of 4 Carriage Trail, was arrested after he got involved in a scuffle with a police officer at the doughnut shop around 11 pm, according to Barrington police.
"He crossed the road on a skateboard in front of a car," said Police Chief John LaCross. "He did not yield the right of way."
Patrol Officer Walter Larson followed Starr into the parking lot, where he began yelling at the officer and using obscene language, LaCross said, while he continued to skate around him.
"He was testing the cop," LaCross said, asking him what he planned to do about the situation. At some point, the police chief said, he threatened to punch the officer in the face.
It is believed that Starr was looking to get arrested, LaCross said, based on comments made by two friends with him.
Two other patrol officers responded to the disturbance: Gregg Koutros and Mark Haddigan. Starr’s behavior in the parking lot led to the charge of resisting arrest.
Starr was taken to the police station and arraigned by the justice of the peace. He was released after his mother posted bail at around 2 am Saturday, Sept. 1.
