Boston Cop Arrested After Allegedly Pointing Pistol With Laser Sight at Two People

Facing criminal charges


Boston Police Officer Sandro Fonseca allegedly pointed a pistol with a laser sight at two people in Roxbury Wednesday night, and was arrested shortly afterward by his fellow officers when a .380 caliber pistol with a laser sight fell from his waistband, Boston police said.

Fonseca, 30, was arraigned today in Roxbury Municipal Court where he pleaded not guilty to all charges and bail was set at $5,000 cash, on charges that stem from confrontations he allegedly had with a man and a woman on Forest Street around 9 p.m. Wednesday.
