Leominster Officer Suspended for Racial Slur Against Carl Crawford

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

 

Leominster police officer, John Perreault, has been suspended with pay after a racial slur made to Red Sox player, Carl Crawford.

There will be a hearing next week telling whether or not Perreault will face additional punishment. Any suspension beyond five days requires a hearing, according to civil service regulations. According to local officials, all options are on the table, up to and including termination from the department.

Perreault, who had been an officer for 13 years reportedly made the comment to the Sox outfielder during a minor-league game between the Double-A Red Sox affiliate Portland Sea Dogs and the Toronto Blue Jays' affiliate Fisher Cats in New Hampshire on July 5th, according to Leominster officials.

The announcement by Leominster Mayor Dean J. Mazzarella and Police Chief Robert Healey was made in a press conference Wednesday morning at the Office of Emergency Management.

Perreault was transferred to the Leominster Police Department two years ago.

According to Crawford, a fan during the game called him a "Monday," a racial slur against African American.
