Claude Bolling (poster at Town Hall)
Besides tying up ambulances for frequent transports to the hospital, scaring away customers in the downtown and leaving unsightly debris in their favorite haunts another problem with our homeless population is some of them can be downright dangerous.
Over the weekend APD arrested Claude Bolling for Assault & Battery on a family member.
Because of the two year old domestic abuse law designed to protect victims the justice system will not release any paperwork concerning that crime.
But Mr. Bolling had two other charges.
In Eastern Hampshire District Court today in front of Judge William O'Grady he had his bail revoked for the previous offense of "failing to register as a sex offender" (which has to be done annually) and he had a Superior Court Warrant outstanding for a probation violation.
He is currently being held for up to 90 days in the House of Correction on the bail revocation, so he will not see the "streets of Amherst" for a while.
