Thai takeout order leads to arrest | Local News


SALISBURY — A Western Massachusetts man arrested after being thwarted by his Thai removal order pleaded guilty to a disorderly conduct charge Friday in Newburyport District Court and paid $150 in costs and fines.

Cory Luckey, 21, from Pittsfield, got angry after accusing the owner of the Mapow restaurant on Bridge Road of overcharging him for his takeout order and refused to leave. Luckey appeared intoxicated when police arrived around 5 p.m. Thursday.

“I asked Luckey how he got to the restaurant, he told me he walked there,” Salisbury police officer Jeffrey Greene wrote in his report.

Luckey became belligerent when Greene demanded to see his ID.

“Why do you need to see my ID? Where’s your ID,” Luckey told Greene, according to the officer’s report. “I told Luckey I needed to see his ID and wanted him to go. Luckey turned around, put his hands behind his back and told me to stop him. ”

Luckey said he didn’t care about being arrested.

Greene and another police officer eventually arrested Luckey and tapped him for weapons.

During the search, Luckey accused officers of touching him inappropriately. At the police station, Luckey continued to be disruptive, giving police false information and claiming his wallet was missing.
