Man sorry for wild '97 arrest gets arrested again

August 13, 2009 8:31:01 AM PDT
A 55-year-old Massachusetts man brought coffee to a police station to apologize for creating a ruckus 12 years ago, and was violently arrested the next day by the same department. A judge on Wednesday ordered William Thomson, of Everett, held without bail. The Newburyport Daily News reports he is charged with drunken driving, resisting arrest and other counts.

Salisbury police say he threatened an officer, punched a Breathalyzer machine and tried to flood his jail cell after his July 14 arrest.

Thomson brought three large coffees to the station a day earlier. He said he wanted to apologize for what happened in 1997, when he behaved in a similar fashion during a disorderly conduct arrest.

Thomson's lawyer did not immediately return a message left by The Associated Press.
