Framingham Teen Faces Assault Charge Against Father in Sudbury
The following arrest information was supplied by the Sudbury Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.
The Sudbury Police Department assisted Framingham officers who were on the lookout late Friday night for a motorist who they believed struck a utility pole.
According to Sudbury Lt. Scott Nix, the motorist wanted was located on Nobscot Road at about 11:41 p.m.
"Upon contacting the occupants, they said they understood why they were being stopped," Nix said.
The ensuing investigation ended up with Framingham police contacting the driver's father to the scene. The father is the registered owner of the car, Nix explained.
"The father and son had a verbal altercation (at the scene of the motor vehicle stop) which resulted in the son attempting to strike the father," Nix said.
After the alleged assault, Charles N. Fuller, 17, of 58 Overlook Drive, was arrested and charged with assault and disorderly conduct.
Fuller was bailed out Saturday at 3:07 p.m. and was scheduled to be arraigned at Framingham District Court on Monday.
