PITTSFIELD — A city man already facing charges has had his bail revoked after allegedly starting to “act crazy out of nowhere” last weekend, damaging a car, kicking in a locked door and smashing a cellphone.
Zachary W. Love, 23, faces multiple new charges in addition to charges on two open cases, which include credit card larceny and operating under the influence, from June and July, respectively.
Responding to a report of a breaking and entering in progress on John Street about 1:38 am. Saturday, police encountered a witness who said Love had kicked in the door of the apartment and was still inside.
The door showed signs of forced entry, police said.
Police spoke to Love, who insisted nothing was going on and said the damage from the door was from a previous break-in.
Another witness told police that a group including Love had a few drinks earlier and had come back to John Street to hang out.
That witness said when the group pulled up to the house, Love began having a “crazy attitude” and accusing a woman in the group, with whom he’d had a relationship, of having received photos from another man, police said. He began hitting the outside of the car with his fists, leaving dents.
Once inside the house, Love allegedly took a woman’s cellphone and went outside with it, removed its SIM card and smashed it. It was at that point, witnesses said Love was locked out of the house, prompting him to kick in the door to get back inside.When police attempted to take Love into custody, he allegedly resisted and thrashed around to avoid being handcuffed.
He pleaded not guilty in Central Berkshire District Court on Monday to three counts of vandalizing property and one count each of felony nighttime breaking and entering, larceny under $250, assault and battery on a police officer and resisting arrest
Judge Paul Smyth then revoked Love’s bail on charges of operating under the influence, unlicensed operation and threatening to commit a crime July. He set a nominal bail of $50 on the new charges.
He is due back in court on Nov. 28 for a pretrial hearing.
