Aggressive Crossing Guard Arrested Two Times in One Day

A Boston high school crossing guard was arrested twice in the same day for first allegedly assaulting a woman with a sign, and later attacking two local news cameramen.

On June 3, a 68-year-old man who works as a high school crossing guard for the Taunton Public School District was on duty when he spotted a car stopped in front of him. He approached the vehicle and reportedly became aggressive with the driver, who was dropping her daughter off at school. The woman said she had been sneezing and had to stop for a moment, and he allegedly got loud with her and insisted she move the car immediately.

The situation escalated, and the man allegedly thrust the sign he was holding through the window on the passenger side where the 12-year-old girl was sitting. Her mother got out of the car, and the crossing guard allegedly knocked her down and kicked her while she was on the ground.

The man was arrested, and he is expected to face charges of three counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. He posted a $250 bond after his arraignment. On his way out of the courthouse, the man was involved in an incident that would lead to his second arrest of the day.

It was reported that a few local news outlets had their equipment set up so they could try to interview the man. When he saw the cameras, he reportedly became angry and got physical with some of the crew. He allegedly threw sticks, kicked a photographer, and struck a cameraman.

He was taken into custody a second time, and he is accused of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, assault with a dangerous weapon, and simple assault and battery. He was also fired from his crossing guard position.
