State Rep. Jeffrey Greeson, 51, a Republican from Wentworth, was charged with disorderly conduct, criminal threatening and simple assault, according to police. He was released on personal recognizance and ordered back to Plymouth District Court on May 18.
Police said they made the arrest after receiving a report that a member of the Wentworth Highway Department had been obstructed in his efforts of snow removal by a citizen and had recorded part of the encounter on his cellphone.
Greeson didn’t immediately respond to an email to his Statehouse office seeking comment Friday.
