More charges added in nude clown case


Vosolo’s court-appointed attorney, William Hernon, argued that the state’s bail request was excessive considering Vosolo’s appearance at court that morning and said his family could only raise a maximum of $1,000.

“This issue is will he return; the $40 has shown that he will return,” Hernon said.

Hernon described Vosolo as being a hardworking divorced father of two teenagers who had been gainfully employed for decades. Raised in Boston and graduating from Malden Catholic High School, Vosolo lived in Chelsea before moving to Danvers in 2003, according to Hernon.

During his arraignment, Vosolo, wearing a gray sports jacket, blue shirt and blue jeans, remained mostly silent, whispering to his attorney on just one occasion.

As part of his ruling, Doyle ordered Vosolo to remain drug- and alcohol-free with random screens, have no contact with minors, stay away from all state rest areas, and stay away from the alleged victim.

According to state police, Vosolo surprised the truck driver Tuesday evening just before midnight, hopping naked onto the fuel tank of his truck and peering into his cab. The truck driver then exited the cab to confront Vosolo. During the encounter, Vosolo asked the victim several times if he could enter his truck so they could have sex, according to police. A state police official said the truck driver called police after feigning interest and suggesting they meet up at the Seabrook, N.H., rest stop.

Trooper Michael Caranfa responded to the call and attempted to pull Vosolo over. Vosolo proceeded to throw items, which he later told police were “a glass pipe and a little bit of crack,” out of his white Chevy Caprice, hitting Caranfa’s windshield before stopping alongside the highway in Salisbury, according to Bailey.

Vosolo was wearing only thong underwear when he was ordered out of his car at gunpoint. Assisting at the scene were Trooper Matthew Heaphy, state police Sgt. Bruce O’Rourke and Salisbury police officer Richard Dellaria. A search of Vosolo’s vehicle resulted in the seizure of several sex toys, Halloween masks and head lamps, according to state police.
