Driver charged for attacking Mass. trooper on roadside

Nassive Palmer, 30, became combative after an officer saw the man had outstanding warrants and tried arresting him

By PoliceOne Staff

BOSTON — A driver was arrested and charged with attacking a Massachusetts State Trooper after a minor accident on Interstate 93 Friday morning.

Nassive Palmer, 30, of Woburn, had pulled over in the breakdown lane on 93 South in Medford around 7:30 a.m. after his Dodge Caravan allegedly rear-ended an Audi.

Palmer allegedly became combative and tried to pull and push himself away when Falco tried to handcuff him.

Palmer “subsequently began flailing his arms and striking the trooper with his elbows. While continuing to resist, the suspect caused himself and the trooper to fall onto the hood of the suspect’s van and then onto a guardrail.”
