Pickering Square fight leads to arrest


Police received several calls about a fight at Pickering Square on Monday afternoon involving three males and one was arrested after he refused to stop for an investigating officer, Sgt. Paul Edwards said.

Officer Chris Blanchard tried to stop Kawuan Lynn, 20, of North Berwick, but he would not stop and ended up being arrested for disorderly conduct and refusing to submit to arrest, the sergeant said.

The others involved in the fight “didn’t say why it was started or what it was about” and none wanted to press charges, Edwards said.

He was arrested just after 1:30 a.m. While police were investigating why Devoe was being so loud, they discovered that he had been fighting with his live-in girlfriend and also charged him with domestic violence assault, Edwards said.
