Two police officers were in Haverhill District Court yesterday -- not as prosecution witnesses, but as defendants... Lawrence Patrolman Daron Fraser, 39, of Raymond, N.H., was charged with domestic assault and battery and assault on a pregnant woman outside her home... Kingston, N.H., Patrolman Joshua Wallar, 26, of Methuen, who subdued Fraser with a Taser issued by his department, was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon...

According to the police report, Fraser was outside, struggling with Severino... Wallar, who was in the area visiting his girlfriend, told police he heard the commotion and went outside to help, but that Fraser then walked away from the woman, got into his car and started to drive away. Wallar said he tried to stop Fraser from driving away and thinking Fraser was trying to hit him with the car, fired the Taser at Fraser’s chest... Haverhill police arrested both men about 12:30 a.m. yesterday. They were held overnight and arraigned separately and placed in handcuffs during the court proceedings yesterday... [Assistant District Attorney John] DePaulo said several witnesses have told police Fraser had his knee on Severino’s throat. Defense attorney Pamela Saia Rogers, however, said the woman was never in fear... several witnesses told police Severino appeared to be gagging... Lawrence police Chief John Romero said Fraser, who has been with the departnment for 11 years, will likely be placed on administrative leave and surrender his firearm. At the request of DePaulo, Abany ordered Fraser to turn in any firearms he owns to Romero. Kingston police Chief Donald Briggs told The Eagle-Tribune Wallar has been suspended without pay pending an internal investigation... Wallar is also a part-time officer in Methuen and a former campus police officer at Merrimack College... [Full article here]
