Ouellette would not identify the alleged victim or discuss details of what led to Flynn's arrest... Citing the department's policy against disclosing the home address of a police officer, Ouellette would not specify an address or confirm that Flynn was at home when arrested.

Officer pleads not guilty to domestic assault

A Danvers patrolman charged with domestic assault and battery pleaded not guilty during his arraignment yesterday... Police have released no details about the incident... A brief, one-paragraph police report included in the court file indicates that the victim, Flynn's fiancee, suffered an injury to her wrist... The woman also did not seek a restraining order. Prosecutors did not ask for a no-contact order... only that Flynn be ordered not to abuse the woman... The judge did order that Flynn surrender all firearms and ammunition he may own to Danvers police while the case is pending... Stephen Pfaff, a lawyer representing Flynn yesterday, said outside court that he hopes to resolve the case quickly and indicated that there is a chance that could happen during the next hearing in the case, on Dec. 1.
He declined to comment on the specifics of the case but characterized it as a "minor infraction."
