On Sunday 01/25/15, WPD responded to Big Y on Boston Rd for a reported disorderly customer inside the store. Ofc Jim Gagner was the first to arrive and made contact with a male party exiting the store. The male party began swearing at Officer Gagner and created a disturbance in the parking lot. Officer Gagner attempted to speak with the male party at which time the male party threatened Ofc Gagners life, and charged Officer Gagner with a closed fist. Officer Gagner conducted a tactical take down of the subject who continued to resist arrest. An unknown bystander subsequently assisted Ofc Gagner in taking the subject into custody. The male was subsequently identified as RANDALL LEPORE, 50 of Ludlow MA. Mr Lepore is being charged with A&B on a Police Officer, Disturbing the Peace and Resisting Arrest.

WPD would like to thank the individual who assisted Ofc Gagner. THANK YOU!!!
