TEWKSBURY – Chief Ryan Columbus reports that the Tewksbury Police Department and law enforcement partners located and arrested a man who was wanted on three arrest warrants, and subsequently charged him with resisting arrest and assaulting an officer.
JEREMIAH BELL, AGE 22, OF TEWKSBURY, was arrested and charged with:
- Assault and Battery on a Police Officer
- Resisting Arrest
On Tuesday, April 26, at approximately 7:30 a.m., Tewksbury Police, in collaboration with the Boston Police Department Gang Unit and the Massachusetts State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section, attempted to locate BELL at a home on Revere Road in Tewksbury.
BELL was wanted on an arrest warrant from Lowell District Court charging him with Assault and Battery with a Dangerous Weapon, Assault with a Dangerous Weapon and Intimidation of a Witness; a warrant from West Roxbury District Court charging him with Assault with a Dangerous Weapon, Failure to Stop for Police and Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle; and a warrant from Dorchester District Court charging him with two counts of Threatening To Commit a Crime.
Upon arriving at Bell’s residence, officers setup a perimeter and began searching the home. BELL was located inside a counter in the basement, and punched an officer several times in the head and body when officers attempted to place him into handcuffs.
BELL was taken into custody after a brief struggle in the basement. BELL was offered, but declined medical attention for injuries suffered in the struggle.
BELL is expected to be arraigned on Tuesday in Lowell District Court.
These are allegations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty.
