Mass. man arrested day after apologizing to police

SALISBURY, Mass. (AP) — Police say a man who walked into the Salisbury police station last month with three cups of coffee as an apology for his violent behavior during an arrest 12 years ago created a similar ruckus the very next day during another arrest.

A judge Wednesday ordered William Thomson of Everett held without bail pending a hearing scheduled for Sept. 4.

The Newburyport Daily News reports faces charges including drunken driving and threatening to commit a crime in connection with his arrest July 14 when police found him passed out in a running car.

Police say he repeatedly threatened the arresting officer, punched the Breathalyzer machine, then tried to flood his cell at the station. Police records say he behaved in a similar fashion a 1997 arrest for disorderly conduct.

Thomson's lawyer did not immediately return a call Thursday.
