Members of the Boston Police Department responded at approximately 3:15 AM, following a 911 call reporting an assault and battery taking place. The incident report alleged that, following a minor motor vehicle accident, the defendant approached the alleged victim and acted in an aggressive manner and struck him in the face causing injuries.
Responding officers reported that the alleged victim was present with a bloody lip, and complained of a headache, upon their arrival. The alleged victim was transported via ambulance to Boston Medical Center for treatment.
The Boston Police Department filed an application for issuance of a criminal complaint, which charged the defendant with assault and battery. An evidentiary hearing was conducted before the Clerk Magistrate of the Central Division of the Boston Municipal Court.
Criminal Defense Attorney Vincent A. Tofani successfully argued that the application for criminal complaint must be denied for lack of probable cause.
