ASSAULT WITH A DANGEROUS WEAPON- NOT GUILTY
Dorchester BMC- A middle aged man was accused of brandishing a firearm during a road rage incident. Because the man had a Class A Large Capacity License to Carry Firearms without restrictions, the charges remained in District Court. At trial, the jury learned how the complaining witness was trying to cover up what really happened- he cut off the Defendant at an intersection and then brake checked him twice while yelling. The jury heard a 911 call of the engine revving and the complaining witness yelling. During cross examination, it became clear the man did not point the gun at this "victim" because he was standing behind him. After deliberating for less than an hour, the jury returned a verdict of not guilty.
