HYANNIS, Massachusetts –  [HN VIDEO NOTES]  –  A Barnstable Police Detective discovered a man down on the sidewalk in the vicinity of 168 Barnstable Road at around 6:00 p.m. last evening.  The man initially appeared unconscious, according to sources.  As you will see and hear in the following HN Video, police first thought they were dealing with an unconscious overdose victim, but it turned out to be a pedestrian struck by a car.  The male victim was being evaluated inside an ambulance, and was conscious and alert, when HN arrived on scene.  The victim did not want to go to the hospital.  He says he suffered road rash and was just a little banged up.  The vehicle that reportedly struck him remained on scene and had a damaged passenger side mirror.  The vehicle also had handprints on the hood that victim says were his.  A woman, reportedly the victim’s girlfriend, was in custody in the back seat of a BPD cruiser.  She was obviously upset and tearful at times.  Sources tell HN that she was under arrest for domestic violence charges for allegedly striking and injuring her boyfriend with the vehicle.  (The boyfriend had reportedly been struck three times.)  She was transported back to BPD headquarters and bailed out after midnight. HN is working on obtaining official details.  When there are domestic violence charges, official details are withheld until after the arraignment, according to a new state law.  Also, since the Barnstable District Court is currently closed due to ongoing building repairs, it’s uncertain if the suspect will be arraigned right away.  According to sources, arraignments will need to be pushed back until mid-January in many cases.  But there is also the possibility that some particular types of cases will be arraigned right away, as usual.  The most important thing in aforementioned case is that the boyfriend was not injured seriously.  And the fact that he was up walking not long afterwards, is a huge break for both him and her.  It’s uncertain what led up to last evening’s alleged domestic violence.

The defendant is presumed to be innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
