Ex-firefighter jailed on charges of domestic abuse


She missed 21/2 weeks of work as a result of the injuries, according to Rocheville’s report.

O’Leary left the couple’s home and stayed with his sister, but he returned on Saturday, she said. Over the weekend, he made threats and called her names and told her he was going to get her fired, she said. That’s when she went to police.

Detectives obtained a warrant for O’Leary’s arrest, and at 7:45 p.m., Salem police Capt. Tom Griffin, Lt. Steve Bona and Patrolman Eric Gagnon made the arrest at Salem Fitness on Swampscott Road

William O’Hare, a lawyer who was representing O’Leary yesterday, did not comment on the allegations, instead agreeing to having O’Leary remain in custody until Monday’s hearing.

Sharon Saunders of Lynn, O’Leary’s sister, attended the hearing yesterday and outside court defended O’Leary, saying, “I know my brother. He didn’t do anything.”
