Springfield mayor’s communications director arrested this past weekend for allegedly vandalizing cars in the MGM Springfield casino’s parking garage.
The twenty-even year old female communications director was arrested at about 3 AM on Sunday at the casino by Massachusetts State Police troopers on the charge of destruction of property.
“Troopers located the woman in an elevator lobby and observed her to be allegedly intoxicated” and placed her under arrest, said David Procopio, spokesman for the Massachusetts State Police.
She was booked at the State Police barracks in Springfield and released until her arraignment in Springfield District Court.
She will be suspended until the case has gone through the court process, said Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno.
“I am hopeful that she will seek the help that she seems to need and we will be supportive of that effort,” Sarno said.
No comment, however, as to the obvious likelihood that the Springfield’s spokesmodel had had a bad night at the tables.
