At 1:12 a.m. Feb. 14, Officer Matthew Labine saw a Ford SUV pass his cruiser sporting a broken drivers side tail light, which proved unfortunate for the passenger, Joe Moreau, 23, who was wanted on domestic assault.
Labine pulled the SUV over, identifying the operator as Kathryn Antonitis, 28, who provided a MA license. The front passenger said he had no ID and said his name was Joe Allard. When asked for a social security number or address, he was unable to provide either.
Labine asked him to step out of the SUV for a weapons-check, which he did, telling the officer that he had lied about his identity and was actually Joe Moreau. A warrant check on him revealed warrants for his arrest on two counts of domestic assault and battery and one count of domestic disorderly conduct.
Antonitis was given a verbal warning on the tail light. Moreau was arrested on the warrants.
