A call to the Sudbury Police Department on Jan. 10 regarding a suspicious person resulted in the arrest of a Brighton resident.

According to Lt. Robert Grady, a Bowditch Road resident reported a male subject screaming obscenities who appeared drunk outside his home.

When officers arrived at the scene, the subject was gone. But officers could hear loud noise coming from a neighboring home.

The subject in question had gone into his parents home, Grady said, and during an investigation became disorderly and wound up breaking an officer's watch.

Officers wound up arresting Joel F. Lee, 40, of 2045 Commonwealth Ave., on numerous charges including:
  • Wanton destruction of property over $250;
  • Resisting arrest;
  • Disorderly conduct;
  • Disturbing the peace.
He was released at 1:54 a.m. on Jan. 11 and was scheduled to be arraigned at Framingham District Court on Jan. 13.

I'm sure the officers watch was a timex from Walmart. Theres no way someone is breaking a watch claimed to be valued at at least $250.00. Just another BS charge by Sudbury PD. My biggest surprise by this report is that the "defendants" last name wasn't Hernadez or Lopez. We all know Sudbury PD loves to arrest/detain anyone thats no white and lives outside Sudbury
