1. Assault and battery on a police officer;

2. Assault and battery with a dangerous weapon;

3. Trafficking in Fentanyl, more than 10 grams;

4. Negligent operation of a motor vehicle;

5. Failure to stop for police;

6. Unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle;

7. Number plate violation;

8. No inspection sticker;

9. Speeding;

10. Window tint violation; and

11. Not in possession of a license.

A bail commissioner set bail for LOBO at $5,000 plus the standard $40 bail fee. He is expected to be arraigned tomorrow at Brockton District Court. LOBO was transported to the Bristol County House of Correction to be held pending arraignment or posting of bail.

Here is LOBO’s booking photo from today.
