I’m the only soul in the newsroom tonight and it sounds like there’s a few stories out there, but the spirit of giving, so far, doesn’t apply to information.
I’m hearing reports of serious accidents in both Burlington and Pepperell that occurred on the day shift, but both Burlington Police, Pepperell Police, and the District Attorney’s Office say no information is being released tonight. I’ll keep trying anyway.
There was reportedly an attempted robbery at Market Basket on Wood Street in Lowell this afternoon, but Lowell Police say reports on that are still being written.
The one thing I do have some information on is Sean Stanek, 36, of 94 A Street, Lowell.
Mr. Stanek was arrested about 2:30 p.m., and charged with operating under the influence, child endangerment while under the influence, failure to restrain a child, failure to stop for police, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (car), assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (pavement), resisting arrest, and operating after suspension.
Mr. Stanek has not yet been bailed and I’m told that reports on the incident that led to his arrest have not yet been approved, but I’m hearing that Stanek is accused of dragging a police officer with his car. The officer is injured, but will be okay.
I’ll definitely be writing more about this guy later. He’s still being held at LPD.
Stay safe and please keep it quite tonight, okay Lowell? Merry Christmas.
