arrested four people Saturday night after they allegedly attacked the officers who responded to a Chestnut Street residence for a noise complaint.
Stoughton Police arrived at 20 Chestnut Street at 9:03 p.m. on April 21. Officers were met by a “belligerent” Antonio Millner, according to the Stoughton Police Department’s Facebook page. Executive Officer Robert Devine said Millner was yelling and screaming that the officers were trespassing.
“After several attempts to calm the situation, officers attempted to place Milner under arrest,” according to the SPD Facebook page.
Millner resisted arrest and threatened the officers, Devine said.
A melee soon broke out as two women and one man started attacking the officers who were attempting to arrest Millner.
The alleged perpetrators jumped on the officers and grabbed at their uniforms. Several officers were punched in the head, Devine said. He said one of the women, Bonnita Gainey-Bush, wrapped her hands around one officer’s throat.
Devine said with minimal damage officers were able to take back control of the situation and made four arrests.
- Antonio Millner, 45, of 20 Chestnut St. in Stoughton was charged with disorderly conduct; resisting arrest; disturbing the peace, seven counts of making threats; obstruction of justice, seven counts of witness intimidation; affray; and keeping a noisy and disorderly home.
- Bonnita Gainey-Bush, 44, of 20 Chestnut St. in Stoughton was charged with four counts of assault and battery on a police officer; disorderly conduct; two counts of obstruction of justice; attempt to commit a crime; assault with a dangerous weapon; affray; keeping a noisy and disorderly house; and resisting arrest.
- Brandon Greene, 26, of 20 Chestnut St. in Stoughton was charged with three counts of assault and battery on a police officer; disorderly conduct; resisting arrest; disturbing the peace; obstruction of justice; witness intimidation; malicious destruction of property; and affray.
- Eloshie Greene, 20, of Dorchester, was charged with assault and battery on a police officer; disorderly conduct; resisting arrest; disturbing the peace; and affray.
Devine said three Stoughton officers at the scene had to be evaluated at the hospital. Luckily, he said all of the injuries sustained appear to be minor and the officers have returned to duty.
