A tisket, a tasket can be more trouble than you realize. A juvenile was arrested, as logged at 6:37 p.m., by Patrolmen Dana Mazola, Roberson Troncoso and Joshua Gerrard on a charge of domestic assault and battery with a dangerous weapon “to wit a wicker basket.” The juvenile was said to have assaulted his sister.

Only nicknames could be provided when a man on Palmer Street told police at 7:52 p.m. that he had been hit in the face by a fellow known variously as “Little Man” and “Clap.” He could not be located under either name.

John Roy Labonte, 49, no address, Beverly, was arrested, as logged at 10:46, on Hawthorne Street on charges of driving with a revoked license, again; giving a phony name to police and having an expired inspection sticker. He was held on three outstanding warrants as well. The arrest came via the Criminal Investigation Division, including Detectives Daniel Tucker and Brian St. Pierre and Patrolman Michael Ball.


Don’t do it on television. Apparently an employee of the 7-Eleven on Norman Street did exactly that, stealing money and scratch tickets from the store while on camera. Police are investigating, according to the log at 11:43 a.m.

Desiree Diana Lucius, 30, no address, Salem, was arrested as logged at 12:52 p.m. on Derby Street by Patrolman Michael Levesque and Sgt. Harry Rocheville on charges of being disorderly and resisting arrest. According to police, “Ms. Lucius was intoxicated and for her safety ... this officer (Levesque) intended on placing her into protective custody.” She struggled and the two officers charged her with being disorderly “due to her unruly, obnoxious behavior.”

A woman explained to police she crashed into a pole on Broad Street because she had turned to yell at her two kids who were arguing in the back seat, as logged at 1:48 p.m.
