Rarely a good idea to flick lit cigarettes at cops' heads

Boston Police report officers investigating a report of yobs throwing beer and urinating off a Hanover Street fire escape wound up arresting three of them - one of whom they say was dropping lit cigarettes on the heads of cops on the ground below.

According to police, officers arrived at 226 Hanover St. around 12:50 this morning in response to a 911 call about a loud party:

Officers approached the outside fire escape and announced their presence to the three males. One of the men shouted at officers, "(Expletive) you (expletive )!"

One suspect threw a lit cigarettes at the officers who were standing underneath the fire escape. At the same time a crowd of approximately 25 people began to gather outside the location.

Officers knocked on the door of the apartment and announced their presence, one of the suspects opened the door. The same suspect stated to officers, “Who the (expletive) are you guys?” and refused to allow officers inside the apartment and assaulted one of the officers. A second suspect also became combative with officers, both were handcuffed along with a third suspect. All three suspects were observed to be the same makes who were on fire escape .

While inside the apartment, officers observed a large amount of liquor bottles and empty beer cans.

Andrew Leighton, 20, of Lowell, Kevin Widnizski, 20, of Reading and Rakan Alzaydi, 23, of Quincy were charged with disturbing the peace and disorderly conduct. Leighton also faces a charge of assault and battery on a police officer.

Google Maps isn't always so forgiving of typos, like the one I made in the address fields for this post.
