State Police Arrest Medford Man for Injuring Milton Officer
Michael Ritson, 31, of Medford, was arrested Tuesday after an incident that resulted in a hand injury for a Milton Police Officer.
At 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, troopers from the State Police Barracks in Revere were successful in searching for and arresting a man in Chelsea that was wanted for injuring a Milton Police Officer back in June. Troopers Michael Haines and Mark Gajewski had received information on the possible location of Michael Ritson, 31, of Medford.
Ritson had three active warrants out for his arrest stemming from an incident that left a Milton Police Officer with a hand injury. A previous attempt to arrest Ritson was unsuccessful as he drove off on his motorcycle before he could be taken into custody.
Troopers waited until the observed Ritson park his motorcycle before approaching him. Ritson correctly identified himself and was taken into custody for three active default warrants from three different courts including one for unarmed robbery. Ritson was further charged with operating a motor vehicle with a revoked license.
He was transported to the Revere Barracks and held until his arraignment this morning in Chelsea District Court.
The above release was submitted by Massachusetts State Police.
