AFFADAVIT OF FACTS The statements below are made in good faith and to the best of the Plaintiff’s knowledge. On March 1, 2004, just a little before noon I was leaving my job at North Adams hospital to go home. I drove down Eagle St. and when I got to the light where Union St. (Rt. 2) is it was green and I took a left onto Union St. (Rt. 2) I did notice that when I came to the light on my right at a red light was a white 18 wheel truck. He was stopped there at a red light. I proceeded to drive eastbound. The speed limit on that part of Rt. 2 is 30 mph. When I looked in my rear view mirror and saw the truck coming through the intersection very fast. My first thought was that he was somehow distracted and didn’t see me in front of him. He continued to drive fast so I sped up a bit and just before he got to my bumper, he pulled out into the left hand lane. And I thought well good, he’s going to pass me. He’s just one of those aggressive truck drivers. But he didn’t pass me, he pulled half way up my vehicle. I couldn’t see him, but I could hear him. So I slowed down hoping that he would pass me. As soon as I slowed down, he put something on that I now know is the Jake brake. It makes a lot of noise. And it made the truck back up very quickly. He pulled behind me then to the point where the only thing in my view was his grill. I couldn’t see his windshield. He repeated this same action again. At this point, I started to get frightened and I thought possibly he was driving under the influence. I was going to pull off the road, but the place where I was right then were abandoned mill and there were no people around. I was afraid he might pull in after me. At this point I was really getting fearful for my life. At this point, I thought that I might be able to get away. I knew there were houses coming up and I was planning on trying to pull into one of the driveways where he couldn’t follow me and run behind the houses towards Cumberland Farms to use the phone. I have a license to carry a concealed firearm and carry a Charter Arms .38 in my purse. I also had a bumper sticker that said “More guns Less Crime-Read the book. The firearm was in a small black holster. I reached in my purse and put it in my right hand. I put my
hand back on the steering wheel getting prepared to turn into one of those driveways when he all of a sudden put his brake on and just backed way off. His cab was very high and I didn’t even know he could see in my vehicle. I thought he must think that I had picked up a cell phone. So I just sped up and pulled into Cumberland farms. He went by me and headed up the mountain. It was a white truck with no markings that I could see. I called the Shelburne Barracks which would be about 15 miles head of the truck on Rt. 2. Sgt Robert O’Hare answered the phone. I told him exactly what happened, and as soon as I told him I had a gun, he yelled at me that I couldn’t have a gun, that the trucker could file a complaint. I couldn’t get him to somehow focus on the fact of what happened to me. I finally said “ Would you please do something? He could be driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. This man could hurt someone.” And he said to me “Oh ok, we’ll go look for him.” I found out later he never even attempted to send any troopers to look for him. Unbeknownsed to me, there were two rookie troopers a few fines up the road doing radar. Note: I believe it is against MSP policy for rookies to be out on their own without a more senior trooper. According to later testimony when the trucker saw them he stopped his truck, jumped out and made the statement. “Some lady waved a gun at me.” He then gave them a description of my car and my license number. The troopers never detained him nor did they check his license or ID. I then proceeded up Florida Mountain. I had my gun, still in its’ holster next to me on the passenger seat. I know this is leagal as long as I am alone in the vehicle. I was going east and two state troopers passed me going very fast in a Westerly direction. I thought “Oh good they are looking for the trucker, but they’re going in the wrong direction. I thought there must be other troopers on the other side of the mountain. So I proceeded on up Florida mountain. Just before Randall’s general store (about 1.5 miles) I noticed a blue car tailgating me. There was no police bubble, no sirens or lights. I thought, “what is happening today?” I pulled into Randall’s store to let the car go by. When I pulled into the parking lot the blue car pulled in behind me and another car that I hadn’t seen that was a marked state police care. Then they put their lights on and I sat in the car. After a minute or so Trooper Curran came up to my window and faced me yelling at me to put my hands on the wheel which I did. She continued to yell, “Is there a gun in the car, Is there a gun in the car, Is their a gun in the car?” She did this in rapid succession, leaving me not time to answer the question. When she finally stopped yelling, I volunteered to get out of the car and explain what had just happed. She ignored what I said and I was becoming increasingly concerned about her erratic, unprofessional behavior. She left for a short time, then came back and ordered me out of the car. I tried several times to explain to both troopers what had just happened and asked them to check with the Shelburne Barracks. I don’t know if they ever did. Every time I would try to explain they would interrupt me and not let me finish. I was never even informed as to why they had stopped me. The police report said I was stopped for a gun violation. They asked me if they could search my car. I said no. They asked me if they could search my person. I said no but they could search my jacket because that was the only place I could have concealed anything. Then trooper Robertson padded me down in spite of the fact I had not given her permission and they had not given me a reason for the stop or that they had any reason to think I had committed a crime. Trooper Robertson sent back to the car radio a couple of times. One time she came and said to the other trooper that the car was registered to my husband. In all this time I was never asked for my license nor was I ever allowed to complete a sentence. After one of the radio calls in which they apparently were talking to Sgt. Potter of the Cheshire Barracks who seemed to be giving them step by step instructions from long distance they finally said “Can we see some ID so we know who you are?” I told her I would get my purse and give it to her and tell her where the ID was. To this point their behavior had been so erratic I was afraid of what might happen if I reached in my purse.
I handed her the purse and she went to her car. She left my purse on the hood of her car and got back in her vehicle. When she came back this time she told Trooper Curran I did indeed have a legal driver’s license and a license to carry concealed firearm. At this point I was not told I was free to go. We were just standing there. Then this man in a gray suit appeared. I had not noticed a car pull up. He did not identify himself to me. He just walked up to me and said “What did you do to piss the trucker off.? He went in my car, took my gun off the passenger seat and removed the bullets, put them in his pocket and then put the gun back on the seat. I later found out he is Detective Richard Lesniak form the North Adams police department. We were in the town of Florida where he has no jurisdiction. Once again, none of them seemed to know what to do next and I still wasn’t told that I was free to go. At this point I asked if I could go in to the store to buy some water, and they said yes. So I went in and bought some water and came back out. I don’t know what they had been discussing but then Detective Lesniak pointed to my gun on the seat and said to the troopers “ Well that right there is against the law. You can’t have a gun in a car.” When he was later questioned by my lawyer as to why he said that, his response was, “I don’t really know much about the gun laws.” He then removed the gun from my car and handed it to Trooper Robertson. I asked for a police escort home as I was now defenseless and didn’t know where the trucker was. They refused my request. They then all went back to their vehicles and left me standing there. About 30 seconds later Trooper Robertson jumped back out of her car, ran over to me and read me my Miranda rights but didn’t tell me what I was being charged with. Then they all left. She asked me if I wanted to come to the barracks and make a statement. I said “no, I want to go home and call a lawyer Both my husband and myself requested Major Charles Appleton to investigate these violations of my civil rights. I also requested Chief Morocco of the North Adams Police Dept. to investigate Lesniak’s illegal behavior. Neither requests were honored. Fourteen days later I received a charge unsigned and not sworn to in front of a clerk of courts of “Assault with a Dangerous Weapon.” The police did not witness the event. There were no witnesses. There was never a police investigation and Mr. Harkins stated he did not want to file a complaint.
