The local dailies have a split decision on Jared Remy’s efforts to avoid ever getting time off for good behavior.
Jared Remy said to use chair, bar of soap in jail fight
Jared Remy, the son of Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy, allegedly attacked a fellow inmate with a chair and bar of soap during an incident last week that has prompted new charges against him, a law enforcement official said.
The official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the matter, had no other details of the alleged assault, including the extent of the other inmate’s injuries.
The aforementioned “law enforcement official” may or may not be from the Middlesex sheriff’s office, which “confirmed [on Friday] that Remy, 35, allegedly attacked another inmate the day before at the Cambridge jail where Remy is awaiting trial on charges of murder in the death of his girlfriend, Jennifer Martel, on Aug. 15. However, the sheriff’s office did not specify the type of weapon used in the alleged jailhouse assault.”
Crosstown, the Boston Herald has the real scoop:
Jail: Jared Remy used soap, hot liquid in assault
Jared Remy used a plastic chair, scalding liquid and a bar of soap to attack a fellow inmate at the Cambridge jail Thursday, court records state.
A criminal complaint filed against the 35-year-old son of NESN Red Sox color commentator Jerry Remy and obtained by the Herald yesterday states he will be arraigned April 24 on eight felony counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and one misdemeanor count of assault and battery.
Remy’s attorney Edward P. Ryan Jr. could not immediately be reached for comment. The complaint does not make clear what circumstances precipitated the fight.
A clear win for the feisty local tabloid in this round of the bake-off.
