Boston Police report arresting a Fall River man on a variety of charges last night after he allegedly did a variety of bad things, starting at Ocean Prime Restaurant and ending with him and a pal captured nearly a mile away on Drydock Avenue.
Police say they were summoned to the eatery on the wharf where Anthony Pier 4's parking lot used to be around 6:20 p.m. when Jason Wages, 29, of Fall River, eating with three other people, "began harassing female waitstaff as well as customers:"
Staff members confronted Wages and he head butted an employee and called him a racial slur several times. Wages then head butted a second employee, and spit at a third employee before leaving the establishment. While exiting, Wages threatened to shoot "everyone in the place".
According to witnesses, Wages grabbed his keys from the valet and fled the scene striking a motor vehicle. Several officers responded to the scene and were informed by a witness that there was a motor vehicle crash at 316 Northern Avenue at the Boston Public Works Building. Officers responded and located an unoccupied vehicle that had struck the building and damaged the gas line.
While they were there, a bypasser told police he'd seen two guys running away with two large garbage bags.
Officers located Wages at 22 Drydock Avenue and the second individual was located in the parking garage at 12 Drydock Avenue. Officers located and seized two large garbage bags containing 53 large heat-sealed bags of marijuana as well as $8,600.
Wages was charged with two counts of assault and battery, two counts of leaving the scene of a property-damage crash and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, police say. The other man was interviewed, then released, police say.
