I want to say right off the top that there is nothing in the news that I read that reported injuries or any indication that Officer William Mosley has lost control of his temper. If he has, it's not in the news. Also, because this is a blog and not a newspaper, I can tell you that there is a woman in the newspaper earlier this year and last year, by the same name as Officer Mosley's wife that has some charges of her own. I don't know if it's the same person so I won't post them here now. If it is her I also don't know if the charges are legitimate or a set up. I hope though that they both get help on how to get along while they have to parent together - whether they make up or go their separate ways.

I know how hard divorce can be.

[EXCERPTS] WORCESTER — A city police officer will appear in court tomorrow after he was arrested and arraigned last week for allegedly assaulting his wife. Police Officer William D. Mosley, 32, of Ashmore Road, is facing charges of aggravated domestic assault and battery and threatening to commit a crime in Central District Court. The charges stem from a May 19 incident outside his home involving his wife, Stacey Mosley. In an interview today, Mrs. Mosley said Officer Mosley never assaulted her and the whole incident has been “blown out of proportion” by police. She plans to ask for the criminal charges to be dismissed in court... Mrs. Mosley, who is five to six months pregnant, told police that Officer Mosley yelled at her and stated he didn’t want her at the home, the records state... “He did not drag me. He did not assault me... It was a verbal argument.” Mrs. Mosley said she left and did call police. She did not call because of the argument, but would not say exactly why she called police. “I called police for a different reason,” she said... Police Chief Gary J. Gemme said Officer Mosley is on restricted duty and is currently assigned to the Service Division. Citing department policy, Chief Gemme said the officer’s firearms license has been temporarily suspended, as is the case in any type of domestic incident [Full article here]


IS THE PROOF, AND THE TRUTH, IN THE COFFEE?Worcester Telegram & Gazette

[EXCERPTS] Kevin Larson insists that he never wanted his estranged wife arrested when he called police after she threw coffee on him during an argument in front of their home. Kristina Larson, meanwhile, insists that she “tripped in a hole” on the sidewalk and the cold coffee flew from the thermos and all over her husband’s white dress shirt... Suffice it to say that the Larsons are in the midst of a bitter divorce. And this sort of nonsense doesn’t typically make the newspaper, except that Ms. Larson alleges that her husband, a local criminal lawyer, used his friendship with a Worcester cop to have her arrested... Mr. Larson acknowledged this week that the coffee was cold. He also admitted that he called his friend, Worcester Police Officer William Mosley, on his cell phone, but claims he only wanted the number for police dispatch. Records show that Mr. Larson did call the police non-emergency number at 10:40 a.m. to say that his wife had thrown coffee on him. He wasn’t hurt and the coffee wasn’t “that hot,” he told police, but he wanted to make a report. Meanwhile, in a burst of self-confession and perhaps anticipating that her husband had beaten her to the punch, Ms. Larson called police, too, on her way back home and dutifully reported that she had just spilled coffee on him. Shortly after, a uniformed Officer Mosley and a fellow officer showed up at the house in a cruiser. THEY WERE OFF DUTY but working an overtime detail, according to Police Chief Gary Gemme. “I think he was checking to see if I was all right,” Mr. Larson ventured. Uh-huh. Also on the scene was an officer who was supposed to be there, and Ms. Larson was arrested and charged with domestic assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (hot coffee). Except that both parties agree that the coffee was cold and speculate that police simply assumed it was hot... “I was arrested only because my husband has connections and he told them to arrest me,” she said. But Sgt. Kerry Hazelhurst, a police spokesman, noted that domestic violence laws require police to make an arrest when even the slightest instance of abuse is alleged, and he said that Officer Spinelli responded appropriately...

WORCESTER OFFICERS SET TO BOX IN LONDON Police to box 'across the pond'

[EXCERPTS] For Police Officer Andrew "A.C." Cravedi, boxing is about the excitement. For Officer William D. Mosley, it's the passion. '"I train seriously now, it's like a lifestyle to me," he said. The two partners on the police beat are part of an effort to establish a Worcester Police Department boxing team, and will pioneer that cause when they travel to London on Friday to fight police officers on that city's metropolitan force... "They're going to be representing Worcester police," said Officer Nathan Reando, of the gang unit, who is spearheading efforts to form the Worcester team.... Officers Cravedi and Mosley leave for London tomorrow, and fight Friday as heavyweights... In their day jobs, they're partners on the 3-11 p.m. shift, patrolling the Pleasant and Chandler streets area. They have different styles on the job, with Officer Cravedi being the diplomat and Officer Mosley being the enforcer. Officer Cravedi likes to call it "verbal judo." "I'm not tolerant of too many excuses," Officer Mosley said. "If a situation calls for more diplomacy, he's the man... There's going to be knockouts," Officer Mosley predicted. [Full article here]

    WORCESTER — A Worcester police officer charged with domestic assault and his wife, accused of a criminal harassment by her husband, were the subject of separate hearings in Central District Court yesterday.

    The case against Officer William D. Mosley, 32, of Ashmore Road, alleges he assaulted his wife May 19. He was arrested on charges of aggravated domestic assault and battery, and threatening to commit a crime. His case was the subject of a pretrial hearing yesterday. The officer is on restricted duty.

    Meanwhile, his wife, Stacey M. Mosley, of Glenn Ellen Road, who is pregnant, was in the courthouse for a hearing on a motion relating to a criminal harassment charge filed by her husband.

    Both cases were continued.

    In the case against the officer, according to court records, the officer was outside his home with his wife, who has a different home address than Officer Mosley. Mrs. Mosley told police that Officer Mosley yelled at her and said he didn’t want her at his home, the records say. Mrs. Mosley told police her husband forcefully grabbed her left arm and dragged her toward her car, according to court records. She also said he threatened to assault her, police reports said. Police were called and Officer Mosley was arrested. Tuesday, in an interview with the Telegram & Gazette, Mrs. Mosley said she planned to ask the court to dismiss the charges against her husband. That did not happen.

    Within the last six months, Officer Mosley sought legal action against his wife.

    According to court documents, Officer Mosley reported four incidents to the Worcester police between Dec. 26 and Jan. 26. Officer Mosley told police that Mrs. Mosley showed up at his house and began knocking on his door and yelling for about 20 minutes outside until he called police. On Jan. 1, Officer Mosley alleged that Mrs. Mosley parked outside his house. On Jan. 26, Officer Mosley alleged that Mrs. Mosley had been continuously calling him and driving by his house for the previous four to six weeks, and on this date, walked into his house unannounced, according to court documents.

    Police Chief Gary J. Gemme has said Officer Mosley was put on restricted duty recently, is assigned to the Service Division, and that the officer’s firearms license has been temporarily suspended.
