DA: Officer injured in fight with gun-toting drug dealer in Dorchester
A Dorchester man fresh out of prison for shooting at a Boston cop in 2006 faces arraignment this morning on charges he fought and injured a Boston Police sergeant during an overnight arrest off Talbot Avenue, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.
Calvin Horne, 26, was in the process of being arrested around 1:50 a.m. at Colonial Avenue and Millett Street when he turned violent and grabbed at one officer's gun, the DA's office reports - adding his own 9mm gun had a round in a chamber.

According to the DA's office, the sergeant suffered injuries to his head and ear.
Once taken into custody, police found two dozen bags filled with suspected crack cocaine on Horne, the DA's office says, adding the contents of the bags are now being tested at a State Police lab.
Horne will be arraigned in Dorchester District Court on a variety of drug, gun and aggravated assault and battery charges, the DA's office says.
In 2006, police officers who heard gunfire near Langdon Street in Roxbury spotted Horne fleeing the scene. When they began to chase, he paused and fired a shot at one of the officers - who fired back. Neither was injured. Horne was convicted in 2009 and sentenced to 3-4 years in prison, the DA's office reports.
