Officers responded to a report of a group of drunk people causing a disturbance in the lobby of the Sheraton Boston at 39 Dalton Street at 2:13 a.m. on January 13.
Upon arrival, officers spoke with hotel staff, who stated that two groups fought in the lobby and in the front driveway prior to police arrival. The hotel security said that one group had left the hotel in cars, while the other was outside on the sidewalk.
The security contacted the police for help in removing some more people from the lobby. While the officers were moving this group, a fight broke out on the eighth floor. While a few officers stayed in the lobby to monitor the group, officers went up to the eighth floor to break up the fight. While in the elevators, the officers could reportedly hear a loud commotion.
At this time, the officers in the lobby were alerted of a new fight breaking out in the street and on the fourth floor.
The officers in the elevator reached the eighth floor and the crowd entered the elevator. Officers observed the suspect, who appeared “extremely intoxicated.” The suspect began pushing people into the elevator and yelling at people. When officers told the suspect to quiet down, the suspect began cursing the officers.
When friends of the suspect attempted to calm her down, the suspect began punching them and violently resisting them. After a brief struggle, officers arrested Madonna Brown of 47 Mass Ave and charged her with disorderly conduct and assault and battery.
