Had you done this in a cops yard you would’ve been shot. Had these homeowners shot the cop who pulled the gun on them THEY would be going to prison. Keep telling yourself it’s only 1 or 2 bad apples.
An on-duty Framingham police detective accused of pulling over to relieve himself in a private yard, then drawing his gun on the home’s resident, has been indicted on criminal charges, the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office announced yesterday.
Detective Scott Brown, 38, of Mendon was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and making threats stemming from an April 29 incident taking place on private property in Framingham, said spokeswoman Cara O’Brien.
Prosecutors say Brown, who was on-duty but not in uniform and driving an unmarked vehicle, got out and began to urinate. A woman who lives at the unidentified address approached and asked what he and his partner were doing, O’Brien said.
After Brown allegedly told the woman to “stop looking” and returned to his cruiser, her husband – upon hearing the commotion – drove over in his golf cart and stopped next to Brown as he was pulling away, O’Brien said.
The two exchanged words, and Brown then got out and drew his firearm, pointed it at the victim, and said, “Move it or get shot,” prosecutors said.
The wife called 911. A video surveillance camera on the property captured the incident, O’Brien said. Messages left with Framingham police were not returned. Brown could not be reached for comment.
