BOSTON, Mass. — In an incident a year ago, three Raynham police officers struggled to arrest a 20-year-old man who allegedly had abused his girlfriend.
Matthew Hayes ordered the police out of his apartment, screaming obscenities and flailing his arms. The noise awoke neighbors, who crowded outside in the hallway.
