Man already facing attempted-murder charges latest to be charged with Red Line beatings

UPDATE: The DA's office reports Capuzzo was not arraigned today. He instead faces a clerk's hearing to determine whether authorities have probable cause for a criminal complaint. A date has not yet been set for that hearing.

Michael Capuzzo, 20, of South Boston is scheduled for arraignment today for his alleged involvement in a Red Line brawl that sent a man to the hospital, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.

Capuzzo is no stranger to law enforcement.

On New Year's Eve, 2011, he allegedly sliced up five people at a Milton home when he and about 30 of his friends were denied entrance to a New Year's party there.

Capuzzo has yet to come to trial on those charges.

The Suffolk DA's office says he also is awaiting trial in South Boston District Court on a charge of illegal weapons possession.

Four other suspects were arraigned on Monday for allegedly stomping a man on a train entering Broadway and several Rhode Island teenagers who tried to come to the man's aid.

Innocent, etc.

    If he gets released back to the streets today there is something majorly wrong with our court system. This offense should have him jailed until arraignment.

    Huh?

    Many people are held in jail until they face arraignment for whatever crime they are accused of committing. And since this appears to be the third crime he is accused of committing I say lock him up until his first court date.

    Elect judges. Because the ones being appointed don't ride the train.

    Bail was $10,000 after his arrest: http://boston.cbslocal.com/2012/01/02/southie-man-arrested-in-milton-new....

    That's legit but in MA you can go to a higher court and get your bail reduced. I've never seen a DA agree to that unless they think the guy is innocent, so you can bet it was a judge who walked this kid out the door.

    because he's a 'good kid', and 'turning his life around', now that he has a baby daughter or some such shit.

    On a side note, are you shitting me? Dangerous 'thugs' worse than this guy have been released back into the 'community' for the past 50 years, often early and often with 'progressive' advocate support.

    Wrong Information

    By on

    He was not charged, arrested or arraigned for anything to do with the red line attacks. Go to the courthouse and check. The media is wrong.

    From the DA's office

    By on

    They sent this out this morning:

    MICHAEL CAPUZZO, 20, of South Boston is expected to be arraigned today in South Boston Municipal Court on assault and battery charges stemming from the March 9 beatings of six people on an MBTA Red Line car. Capuzzo will be the fifth defendant charged in that incident; his codefendants – MICHAEL DAVIS of Quincy, PATRICK J. JOYCE of Dorchester, KEVIN McCARTHY of South Boston, and KRISTINE MULLEN – were arraigned Monday following their arrests by Transit Police on charges of assault and battery, assault with a dangerous weapon, and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon for their roles in the mob attack on five teens and one adult.

    Confused

    This whole thing is a total cluster.

    Now they attacked 5 teens and an older man? I thought it was the older man and the two young women who tried to break it up? Where'd these 5 new victims come from?
