Wareham Police Department arrest woman for allegedly scuffling with officers


On Sunday, January 3, at about 11:50 p.m. officers responded to an address on Fearing Hill Road for a person playing loud music in a vehicle. Officer Hannah Salerno asked the occupant of the vehicle to turn down the music, and the officer cleared the area, with peace restored.

At about 12:30 a.m. Officer Salerno was again dispatched to the same location, for another disturbance involving loud music. Officer Salerno asked the person to turn off the engine and go in the house. This time the person refused, and a scuffle ensued after an attempt was made to place her under arrest. With the assistance of Sergeant Daniel Henderson and Officer Justin Silveira, the individual was placed in custody. Heather Whiteley (37), of West Wareham, was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, and resisting arrest.

Ms. Whiteley refused to be placed into a cruiser and was very belligerent. Sergeant Henderson directed Officer Silveira to go back to the police station and bring the prisoner transport van to the scene so that Whiteley could be safely moved. The three officers had to physically lift and place her in the van because of her refusal to cooperate. There were no injuries reported during the incident.
