Fox 25 News: One person was shot by police in Salem early Wednesday after allegedly trying to run over two police officers who approached his parked car, according to an arrest report. Salem Police Sgt. Michael Dunn said officers on routine patrol on Congress Street around 1 a.m., near Shetland Park, approached a car in the parking lot and the driver attempted to run the officers over. One officer, identified only as Officer Musto, fired his gun and hit the car, grazing the suspect in the arm, according to court documents. The man, later identified as Austin Boga, then drove away, before eventually crashing his car on Peabody Street and then fleeing on foot along the Salem Harbor waterfront, Dunn said. Boga was then cornered by other officers and jumped into the harbor to evade them, Dunn said, before eventually surrendering to police. He was taken to a local hospital for the wound on his arm, but was released in time for arraignment. Two police officers were also transported to a local hospital to be checked for injuries, Dunn said, but will be O.K.
According to court documents, the officers who initially approached Boga in his car said they thought he was overdosing. State police detectives were at the scene early Wednesday as is standard in officer-involved shootings. The name of the officer who fired at the man has not been released. Boga has been charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, assault with a dangerous weapon, failure to stop for police, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, leaving the scene, speeding, stop sign violation and marked lanes violation.
Varone said Boga was extremely angry when taken to Salem Hospital, screaming and swearing at officers and telling one officer who tried to read him his rights to “go (expletive) yourself,” referring to the officer as a “pig.” Boga’s mother and the mother of his fiancee, as well as a younger woman who did not identify herself, were present in court, but verbally lashed out at reporters when asked if they wanted to talk about what had happened to him.

Cool haircut bro.
Homeboy here tried to run over a cop who was trying to help him out because he thought he was an overcooked junkie, terrified half the city of Salem during peak tourist season by smashing into cars to run away from the cops, jumped into the Goddamn ocean in late October, begged for the cops to save his life, then called the cops pigs after he tried to kill them.
Not his fault though – he just hates traffic.
He’s previously been arrested for sucker punching a bouncer.
While Miglionico was struggling with the first bouncer, a second bouncer tried to assist. That’s when, police say, Boga jumped into the fray, sucker punching the second bouncer on the side of his head. The blow shattered that bouncer’s eye socket and cheekbone, police said, and sent him to the pavement, where he struck his head. He suffered a concussion and a 3 1/2-inch wound, police said in the report. The bouncer is still suffering visual problems and headaches, prosecutor Erin Bellavia told a judge, and has had to quit his job as a result of the attack. The investigation led him to a woman who was a friend of Boga. She eventually agreed to share a series of Facebook messages in which Boga allegedly told her, “That dude that went in the ambulance. I blasted him,” and “Yeah, that dude that was under the car, that’s the dude I hit. Knocked him out 1 hit.” Bellavia, who asked Judge Emily Karstetter to set bail at $5,000, noted that Boga had just completed a term of probation in a Lynn assault and battery case on April 28.
And he’s got a bunch of other Google trophies under his belt.
He also hates the police because he’s a well known junkie.
So I think we all can guess who his favorite sportball team is…
Never thought I’d see the day when a career criminal shitbag owned a flat brimmed Chicago Bulls hat. It’s so rare to see. The only thing more shocking than that would be to find out he has an affinity for pit bulls.
This Bohemian butt monkey is a walking Turtleboy stereotype. Those stereotypes exist for a reason.
Here’s the best part – the car he used for Salem bumper cars was his first car, and his girlfriend was so proud of him too.
When the high point of your relationship is when your 25 year old boyfriend bought his first car, you know you’ve set the bar high. #LifeGoals
Girlfriend is a nice piece of Peabody pie if I do say so myself.
Scissor factor seven.
Ya know she’s a classy broad because she bangs career criminals and works at Hooters.
Don’t worry donkey dick, I’m sure she’ll stay loyal to you when you’re gone for 5-10.
Homegirl has something to say too.
“People have feelings.”
Yea, that’s what matters here – hurt feelz of the guy who tried to kill cops and put the lives of innocent people in danger.
“be respectful of other people’s families and loved ones.”
Oh, you mean by NOT driving like a maniac through downtown Salem and crashing into shit during Halloween week?
Yea, the Instaslampig is the real victim here. Be mindful of her when judging the guy she chooses to fornicate with. Sounds like he really loves her too.
My advice to you is to get a new haircut quickly, because if you walk in there looking like a Frenchman you’re gonna be what Prison Mike would call “da belle of da ball.”
The only people who are gonna be playin are your cellmates with your fart box.
