Trio arrested after demanding cops shovel their car out of snow
Three people in Massachusetts were busted after they allegedly demanded that police shovel their trapped car out of snow — culminating with one of the suspects striking a cop. The vehicle got stuck Tuesday when the driver lost control and plowed into a mound of snow amid the winter storm that walloped the Northeast, the MetroWest Daily News reported. The car’s occupants — a woman and two men — tried to free the car to no avail as traffic became blocked in Framingham. Police said the suspects grew angry when an officer told them they had to call a tow truck, according to the news outlet. When police tried to speak to the driver, 19-year-old Bianca Torres, “the officer was immediately met with angry people demanding [the officer] to get a shovel and help them dig and push the vehicle out of the snowbank,” authorities told the site.
