Marshfield Man on a Ramage

Post by Hurricane » Jun Tue 21, 2005 12:46 pm

"Police say man on rampage injures 2: Reportedly hit man with brass knuckles, attacked officers"

By SHAMUS McGILLICUDDY
The Patriot Ledger

Marshfield police say a convicted drug dealer armed with a knife and brass knuckles rampaged through Brant Rock, injuring one bystander and at least one police officer.

James Ferguson, 29, of 872 Ocean St. was arrested at about noon Sunday and charged with three counts of assault and battery on a police officer, six counts of assault with a dangerous weapon, three counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and resisting arrest, police said.

Ferguson, who was convicted in 1998 of dealing drugs in Marshfield, was released Sunday night on $5,000 cash bail. He pleaded innocent to the charges in Plymouth District Court yesterday.

Lt. Detective Robert Wright said Ferguson got involved in a -“-“road rage'' incident with another man while driving on Ocean Street at about 10 a.m. Wright said Ferguson followed the other driver to the Blackman's Point trailer park.

-“-“Ferguson went to the trailer park and threatened several people with a knife and object that appeared to be brass knuckles,'' Wright said. Ferguson drove away before police arrived. About five minutes later, police received a call about a scuffle outside a nearby grocery store.

-“-“Ferguson was having a heated argument with a lady friend outside Brant Rock Market,'' Wright said. -“-“A gentleman tried to intervene and Ferguson hit him in the face with the brass knuckles.'' Ferguson then drove away, police said. Wright said police then went to Ferguson's Ocean Street address looking for him. A relative said he was not home.

About an hour later, police received a tip that Ferguson was home. When they returned to the house, police spotted Ferguson running away. Police caught up to him on Wilson Road, where, police said, Ferguson made a desperate attempt to hold off the officers.

He threw a bicycle at one officer, injuring him, Wright said. He allegedly threw a wood plank at a second officer and kicked a third. One officer sprayed him with Mace while trying to subdue him but Ferguson continued to resist, kicking at police, Wright said.

Ferguson was eventually subdued and arrested. Police recovered the brass knuckles but have not found the knife he reportedly used to threaten people at the trailer park.

In 1998, Ferguson was arrested by Marshfield police for possession of marijuana and hallucinogenic mushrooms with intent to distribute. The arrest followed a six-month investigation that culminated in a night-time raid on a Standish Street home. Ferguson and two other people were arrested during the raid. Ferguson pleaded guilty to the drug charges and received a one-year jail sentence.

I live down the street from Blackman's and never knew what was happening. :shock:

But then again.. most of the activity was in front of the Market and Wilson St.

I read that and cringed...I knew him from high school...

I actually had no idea he was arrested back in 98...

The poor guy who stepped in at the Market -- I hope he's ok -- you just never know when someone is going to snap.

Oh, Christina... he didn't just snap. He's been known to be a "bad news" kind of guy for years, from what I hear.

Christina... I just heard that the fellow was bleeding from the side of his face by the ear. He was spotted riding a bike down Ashburton... so he lives near-by.

Umm...why is it bizarre? It's the same guy

This is a very old thread, as he has apparently been a miscreant for a very long time...

I just saw this thread too and thought it was strange that he's 29, and 17 years ago was convicted of dealing drugs. At 12 years old. Until I realized this is an old thread.
