Revere man arraigned for alleged drunken space-saver rage with a snow plow
A Revere man was arraigned today on charges he went berserk in a pick-up mounted with a snow plow outside his house last month, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.
According to the DA's office, Michael Ciarlone, 54, came out of his Bradstreet Avenue home late on Jan. 14 to find a car parked in "his" space. Prosecutors allege he used the plow to block the car in with snow. When the car's owner and several neighbors came outside, prosecutors say, he began yelling about "you immigrants," backed into one man with the truck, got out and kicked him in the head, then punched another man in the face, breaking his glasses.
The crowd eventually subdued him and held him for police.
The DA's office says Ciarlone was released on personal recognizance on charges of operating under the influence and operating with a suspended license. A judge denied a request from prosecutors he stay away from his alleged victims or attend AA meetings. He's due back in court on March 28.
