On October 25, 2022 at approximately 4:20 PM Worcester Police were dispatched to a business located at 360 Franklin Street. Officers were advised that a former employee was trespassing and being disorderly. The caller reported that the male was urinating on the doors of the garage. The individual was identified as 68-year-old Alfred Miron of West Boylston. Mr. Miron had a no trespassing order by the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office.
Officers attempted to speak with Mr. Miron but he refused to talk to them. Officers asked him to exit his vehicle which was parked outside the garage but he refused. As the communication continued and officers tried to de-escalate the situation, Mr. Miron started his vehicle and put it into reverse slamming into a cruiser. The tires of his vehicle began to spin as he pushed his car up against the cruiser creating a cloud of smoke. An officer tried to engage with him through the driver’s side window. Mr. Miron proceeded to put his vehicle into drive dragging the officer. The officer was able to break free when Mr. Miron switched into reverse again striking the cruiser. Mr. Miron then drove at a high rate of speed around the parking lot. Officers had to run out of the way to avoid being struck.
Mr. Miron accelerated at a high rate of speed out of the parking lot.
Officers entered their cruisers and pursued Mr. Miron who was committing numerous traffic infractions (driving on the wrong side of the road, ignoring traffic lights and signs). Mr. Miron continued on Grafton Street before entering onto 290 East. He exited 290 at exit 24 and proceeded onto Plantation Street. He was driving on the wrong side of Planation Street and almost struck a cruiser. He then continued on and crashed into a vehicle at the intersection of Plantation Street and Lincoln Street after failing to stop at a red light. The driver of the other vehicle was treated for non-life threatening injuries. As an officer tried to remove him from the vehicle he attacked the officer. Mr. Miron was eventually apprehended.
Mr. Miron was charged with Assault and Battery on a Police Officer, Assault and Battery with a Dangerous Weapon x3, Trespassing, Willful and Malicious Destruction of Property, Disorderly Conduct, Leaving the Scene of Property Damage and Operating Recklessly So as to Endanger and Failure to Stop for Police.
