Man Arrested At Chris Rock Show
BOSTON – A Quincy man was arrested outside a Chris Rock show in Boston Wednesday night after allegedly assaulting a Wilbur theater crew and a police officer.
According to Suffolk County DA, 26-year-old Caleb Herd also assaulted a police officer and someone at the show who tried to calm the confrontation.
Caleb Heard, 26, of Quincy, Massachusetts, was charged Thursday with trespassing, disorderly conduct, assault and battery on a police officer, resisting arrest and three counts of assault and battery, according to a Suffolk County attorney.
Herd was tried Thursday on charges of trespassing, disorderly conduct, assault and battery on a police officer, resisting arrest, and three counts of assault and battery.
Heard allegedly assaulted a police officer, as well as someone who was with him on the show, who tried to quell the incident.
“We hope the next time Mr. Heard attends a public event he will be smart enough to stick to ground rules,” Attorney General Kevin Hayden said, according to CBS Boston.
Rock has not publicly commented on the incident (Rock’s Boston performances were his first since the Academy Awards, where Will Smith slapped him while presenting the award for Best Documentary Feature.
Smith was pissed off at a joke that Rock made about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, a clean shaven head.
Pinkett Smith has been open about her diagnosis of alopecia, which causes hair loss.)
Until his first show in Boston, where he told the audience he was “still processing” the matter.
