Boston Cop Who Bragged On Camera About Running Over Protestors Is Back At Work

  • Boston Police Sergeant Clifton McHale, who bragged about running down protesters with his patrol cruiser, has been cleared to return to work.
  • McHale told an officer wearing a body camera. “So then I had a f*cker keep coming, f*cking running, I’m f*cking hitting people with the car, did you hear me…”
  • McHale was also accused in 2005 of sexually assaulting an intoxicated woman in an alleyway while on duty after agreeing to escort her to a hotel.

As Higgins noted, the investigation started after McHale was caughton body camera footage saying, “Dude, dude, dude, I f*ckin’ drove down Tremont — there was an unmarked state police cruiser they were all gathered around,” McHale tells an officer wearing a body camera. “So then I had a f*cker keep coming, f*cking running, I’m f*cking hitting people with the car, did you hear me, I was like, ‘get the f*ck—'” After this point, he reversed himself and tried to claim he was joking.

Last year, The Boston Globe reported that McHale was also accused in 2005 of sexually assaulting an intoxicated woman in an alleyway while on duty after agreeing to escort her to her hotel. Following an investigation of that incident, he served a one-year, unpaid suspension…”
