Update: The guy made national headlines in December.
Boston Police report arresting an East Boston man they say got so irritated at people who were trying to keep him from breaking into cars outside Santarpio's he eventually started waving a gun at them, before gaining entry to one car by shooting out its window.
Police report officers arriving at Chelsea and Porter streets around 7:20 p.m. found Stephen Woodard, 30, sitting in a car on Chelsea Street with a shattered driver's side window, blood on his hands. Police say Woodard "sat stoically, refusing to answer officers," his hands between his legs. But after officers got him out of the car, police say, they found a folding knife in his pocket and a gun under the seat.
According to police, Woodard was trying out the door handle of a car parked outside Santarpio's when its owner came out with food and told him that was his car. Woodward walked away, but:
The victim stated the suspect approached another vehicle and again attempted to gain entry by pulling on the door handle. The victim stated he asked the suspect what he was doing and the suspect responded by pulling out a firearm. The victim stated he fled the area, hearing several gunshots as he walked away.
Additional victims stated they had exited the same restaurant as the other victim and were walking to the parking lot when the suspect proceeded towards the two of them and pointed a firearm at them. The victims who were inside of their motor vehicle, fled the parking lot at a high rate of speed, hearing multiple gunshots ringing out from the area.
Another witness stated he had observed the suspect waving the firearm, before shooting at a motor vehicle and fleeing the area.
Woodard was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, carrying a loaded firearm on a public way, possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number, discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a dwelling, assault by means of a dangerous weapon and breaking and entering a motor vehicle, police say. He was also charged as an armed career criminal, which potentially means a longer sentence if he's convicted on the other charges.
