December 2011 Domestic Disorderly Conduct: Dismissed
Police were dispatched to an apartment shared by a boyfriend and girlfriend following a report that the female wanted the male off the premises. Officers arrived on scene and confronted the couple. The female alleged the boyfriend returned home with two friends after spending the night on the town drinking alcohol. She further alleged that when he returned home he was intoxicated talking loudly and acting in a rowdy manner such that his behavior woke the girlfriendӳ young daughter. She asked the boyfriend to leave. When he refused she contacted the police. The responding officers felt the best solution for the coupleӳ differences that evening was for the boyfriend to spend the night outside of the apartment. Officers escorted him from the home and drove him two blocks to a friendӳ house. The police dropped off the boyfriend and departed. Not long after the police were called back to the apartment based on a report from the girlfriend that the boyfriend had returned. When the officers arrived they discovered that the boyfriend gained access to the apartment with his house key after unsuccessfully attempting to enter through the garage. When officers attempted to remove the boyfriend from the apartment a second time he became resistant swore at the officers and verbally threatened to assault them. Based upon this conduct officers placed the boyfriend under arrest and charged him with Domestic Disorderly Conduct. The boyfriend hired Attorney John L. Calcagni III to defend him in this matter. Attorney Calcagni successfully negotiated at a pretrial conference for dismissal of the case and its underlying Domestic Disorderly Conduct charge. As a result the boyfriend did not incur a criminal conviction from this event and will continue to enjoy a clean criminal record.
