Cop trying to break up one fight in Codman Square gets pepper sprayed by participant in second nearby fight, police say

Boston Police report an officer working a detail who was trying to get two women to stop whaling on other in the middle of the intersection of Washington Street and Talbot Avenue was pepper sprayed by somebody engaged in a second street brawl nearby.

Police say the action started around 11:15 a.m. on Friday.

The detail officer was able to separate the two, but simultaneously another fight broke out involving another group. One of the female suspects turned to the detail officer and pepper sprayed her in the face. The suspect attempted to get into a motor vehicle and flee the area.

She didn't get far, police say:

Other officers responded to the area, and were able to stop the motor vehicle. Officers were quickly able to place the suspect into handcuffs as she began to resist. One of the other parties inside the motor vehicle, attempted to interfere with the arrest. Officers gave the second suspect multiple orders to stop interfering or she would be arrested. The suspect began to assault multiple officers, and a struggle ensued. After numerous verbal commands to put her hands behind her back, officers were able to place the second suspect into handcuffs.

Skyla Malave, 18 of Dorchester, was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon - pepper spray - assault and battery on a police and resisting arrest.

Priscilla Malave, 40, of Dorchester, was charged with assault and battery on a police officer and resisting arrest, police say.

That's not what happened. But the fact that an officer on detail tried to break up a fight is news enough.

Lots of anger and rage out there. Then before u know it, if you don't die from violence, you will die from high blood pressure and heart disease. Cause that's what anger and rage does to the body over time.

It’s nice to know that people are brawling outside of Saugus.

to mistakenly throw an elbow at an officer who intervenes. Pepper spray on a uniformed officer is absolutely deliberate and indefensible.
