A judge ordered a man who mouthed off at him held for 90 days on a contempt charge after he'd arraigned him on charges he broke into a Paisley Park home Saturday night, then tried to barricade himself in the bathroom.
According to the Suffolk County District Attorney's office, Marshall Burton, 38, was in Dorchester Municipal Court for arraignment for unarmed burglary and resisting arrest for an incident around 11:25 p.m. at a residence on the Fields Corner street:
Boston Police responded to a Paisley Park address after a resident called 911 and reported that an unknown man had locked himself in the bathroom of her home. The man, later identified as Burton, refused officers' orders to open the door. After discussion with the resident, officers used force to open the door, which Burton had attempted to barricade. He was placed in handcuffs after violently resisting apprehension.
In court Monday morning, prosecutors asked for bail of $500 but also that his bail for trying to break into a Boston Medical Center building on Albany Street on Jan. 2 be revoked. That arrest came about two months after he was was arrested for unarmed robbery outside the Southampton Street shelter - and for attacking and injuring three Boston cops trying to take him into custody.
Judge Jonathan Tynes set bail for the Paisley Park incident at $50 but agreed to revoke Burton's bail in the Boston Medical Center case, after which Burton "launched an extended outburst that disrupted the proceeding," according to the DA's office. Tynes then held a separate hearing and ordered Burton held for 90 days for contempt of court.
