From the Wareham Police Department:

Andy Morales, 39, of 448 Main St., was arrested and charged with driving with a suspended license, subsequent offense, after going on a tirade against officers.

Officer Eric Machado stopped Morales near Dogwood Lane on Friday, July 27, at approximately 6:45 p.m. Morales exited the car and put his hands on the hood of the cruiser, without being asked. Officer Machado, who has dealt with Morales before, handcuffed him due to his past behavior.

After being handcuffed, Morales allegedly began cursing and said, “you pigs, hope you get shot.” As part of the on-scene investigation, officers determined that Morales was operating with a suspended driver’s license. While being taken to the police station, Morales attempted to spit at Machado, but was unsuccessful. At the station, Sgt. Herbert Noble, Officers Michael Phinney and James White assisted in getting Morales into the building. Morales was booked with difficulty and placed into a holding cell where he continued to yell. Morales is due in Wareham District Court this morning.
