The following information was provided by the Watertown Police Department.
Sept. 27, 3:43 p.m.: An altercation in the middle of Lloyd Road involving six people got violent. Police received a report of the incident and when officers arrived they got between the parties. One woman, a 53-year-old from Waltham, had a cut on her face and was bleeding. It appeared that she had been struck by a blunt object. She was treated by paramedics. The fight began when the ex-husband of a resident of the area showed up with his girlfriend. An argument began and the ex-wife came out of her home with a baseball bat and allegedly struck the girlfriend in the head. Others on hand tried to break up the fight, and the girlfriend was able to get her hands on the bat and hit one of the men trying to break things up, and injured him, and then struck another person. When questioned, the people involved gave conflicting statements, but police were able to get access to a home security video that showed the incident. Police arrested the ex-wife, Nicole Rodriguez, 44, of Watertown, on charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and threats to commit a crime for threatening the girlfriend. The girlfriend was summoned to Waltham District Court for two counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (people summoned are not named by Watertown Police).
Sept. 27, 8:06 p.m.: Police went to Main Street after a driver reported a vehicle swerving in the road. The witness saw the car weaving, and had been following it from Trapelo Road in Waltham. At one point the vehicle went up on the sidewalk, and also crossed completely onto the other side of the roadway. The swerving car pulled into a driveway on Main Street. When police found it they saw it was parked and was partially into the bushes and the internal light was on. The driver said she was on her way home from Waltham and was showing signs of intoxication including a strong odor of alcohol on her breath. She appeared confused and admitted to drinking alcohol. Renata Dias, 43, of Watertown, was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol.
