Earlier this month, a Dorchester resident was arrested for disorderly conduct after his racist rant against a black couple in the Adams Corner neighborhood. According to the Boston Globe, 54 year-old Paul Sheehan will now face additional charges.
The new charges come after an investigation by the Boston police civil rights unit. The new charges include threat to do bodily harm, a civil rights violation with no bodily injury, and threat to do property damage in addition to his original disorderly conduct charge.
According the police report, Sheehan was overheard yelling “F–k that N word,” repeatedly.
Sheehan appeared in court after the August 3rd incident and was released on personal recognizance. He is due to appear back in court in October to face disorderly conduct charges.
The globe article goes on to state that Sheehan who worked for Keolis Commuter Services has “been removed from service” as a welder.
