A Boston police officer who was arrested on domestic violence charges this weekend did not show up in Dorchester Municipal Court today because he has entered a treatment center, according to prosecutors and court records.
Patrol Officer Dennis Morson surrendered to Boston police early Saturday morning shortly after his wife reported that she had been physically assaulted by her husband inside their Intervale Street home, according to a Boston police report filed in court.
According to a Boston police report, Morson’s wife told police her husband kicked down doors in their apartment, seized her cellphone so she could not call for help, beat her and placed his hands around her throat.
