Peabody man charged in 128 road-rage incident


Because he was summonsed to court and not arrested, Judge Matthew Nestor denied a request by prosecutors to hold Ouimet on $750 cash bail.

Ouimet has a four-page criminal record that includes numerous assault and battery charges stemming from fights, and dating back to his teen years.

In 2005, Ouimet was charged with and later convicted of attempting to run down a Gloucester police officer who was investigating the theft of a pickup truck with a plow from a condo complex in that city. During the incident, the officer fired his gun at Ouimet, then 19, who was spotted driving the stolen truck. Ouimet later served two years in jail.

Prosecutors also pointed out that at the time of the Danvers incident, Ouimet was out on release on a charge of receiving stolen property, filed last April by Peabody police after an incident at the Northshore Mall.

Ouimet is due back in court in the new case on Jan. 27.
