Quincy Police: Man Showed Up At Station To Pick Fight With Officers

QUINCY (CBS) – A Weymouth man faces charges after he walked into Quincy’s police station looking to fight with officers, according to police.

Keith Hayes stepped into the station’s lobby Thursday night and reportedly told someone he wanted to challenge officers to a fight.

Police say that when officers came out to restrain him, the 39-year-old Hayes threw several punches in their direction.

Hayes was pepper sprayed, handcuffed, and charged with assault and battery on an officer and resisting arrest.

Police noted that Hayes had been carrying some kind of religious plaque, but did not elaborate on whether the item had anything to do with his alleged actions.
