Northampton Cop-Scuffler Faces Sentencing

(Northampton, MA) — A Northampton man who fought with a cop could see up to four years in prison. Casey Howard of Leeds pleaded guilty Tuesday to dealing Suboxone and marijuana, assault and battery on a police officer, and resisting arrest. In January, Howard scuffled with Northampton cop Andrew Kohl on the floor of Thorne’s Marketplace after being confronted in the men’s room. A search of the man’s backpack yielded an ounce of pot, 300-bucks and a digital scale. He’ll be sentenced on Monday.
