Police: Detective Assaulted While Making Arrest on Washington Street
The assault came after the detective responded to a road rage incident Thursday night.
On Thursday night Holliston Police Detective Chad Thompson responded to a report of a road rage incident on Washington Street.
According to Chief John Moore, Thompson found the vehicles involved as they stopped on the side of the road near Dunkin Donuts.
Cleonice Deoliveira was reportedly driving a sedan with her two children in the car when she came upon her ex-husband driving a tractor-trailer.
Moore said Deoliveira passed the 18-wheeler and slowed down to a crawl. At this point Thompson responded and found the two vehicles pulled over on the side of the road and the two people involved out of their vehicles.
"Detective Thompson tried to separate them," Moore said. "He went back to his vehicle as instructed but she continued to pound on the door to his truck. It was at this point she was placed under arrest."
During the arrest Deoliveira, 40, of 16 Depot St., Milford allegedly struck Thompson several times, although she did not cause any injury to him.
She was charged with assault and battery, assault and battery of a police officer and resisting arrest.
The ex-husband, whose name is not being released, took the two children with him in his vehicle. He also arranged for transportation of his Deoliveira's vehicle back to her residence.
