Fall River —
FALL RIVER — A candidate for City Council is facing assault charges after allegedly beating a man up behind a County Street bar.Police said Michael Raposa, 39, of 52 Wood St., has been summonsed to Fall River District Court on a misdemeanor assault and battery charge.Police spokesman Lt. Paul Bernier said an investigation into the matter is still ongoing and that police reports on the matter were not available.Repeated attempts to contact Raposa were met by a phone message saying the call did not go through.The man who was allegedly assaulted said the incident stemmed from a conversation the two men had during a game of pool at the Latino Cafe on July 31.
All this being said, I have to give Mike Raposa the Shamrock seal of approval for kicking off the campaign with an all you can drink green beer party....I look forward to the March 18th police log.
