Boston Police charged a man with being a disorderly person after he allgedly refused to leave a West Roxbury nursing home.

On Jan. 9 around 11:01 p.m., Curtis W. Lee, of 794 Massachusetts Ave., Roxbury, was arrested and charged with being a disorderly person. 

Police spoke with the head nurse at the Roscommon West Roxbury nursing home at 5060 Washington St., who said the visiting suspect was drunk and refusing to leave, according to a Boston Police report. Visiting hours are 7 to 11 p.m. and when staff members told the suspect it was time to go he refused to leave. 

The suspect sat down on a chair on the front porch and refused to leave, even after officers asked him to leave several times, according to a Boston Police report. Officers offered the suspect a ride if he needed one, but he began to swear and berate the officers and staff. An officer put a hand on the suspect's arm to guide him off the porch and he began to resist and then held onto a window that was behind the chair he had been sitting on. 

The suspect refused to let go of the window and he allegedly became combative after officers pried his hands off the window. The suspect could not be subdued, thus he was arrested for being a disorderly person.
