Suffolk County DA Rachael Rollins Cleared In Alleged Road Rage Incident


BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The State Ethics Commission has cleared Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins in an alleged road rage incident that took place on Christmas Eve.

"The State Ethics Commission has concluded its review and is closing the matter having found no violations," said Rollins' lawyer Ronald Sullivan.

The incident in question happened at a shopping center on Christmas Eve.

Katie Lawson of Dorchester filed a complaint with Boston Police and then the attorney general's office after the incident.

In her complaint, Lawson alleged that Rollins threatened her, as both women were attempting to exit the South Bay Mall on Dec. 24.

Lawson claimed Rollins inappropriately flashed her blue lights at her and activated her siren. Rollins denied threatening Lawson.

"This few-second traffic encounter has been thoroughly reviewed and not a single criminal, civil rights or ethical violation occurred," said Sullivan.

Last month, Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey found no cause for criminal charges against Rollins.

The AG's office said it examined video and audio from the confrontation. Lawson was in her own car, and Rollins was in a state vehicle with the lights and siren. They conducted interviews and then referred the incident to the State Ethics Commission for review.

"The district attorney is not surprised by these outcomes, and sincerely hopes we can all return to the far more pressing matters facing the Commonwealth," said Sullivan.
