WC official, son arrested after scuffle with cops
Westchester's director of fiscal affairs and his son both face felony charges for allegedly attacking police inside a county office building Tuesday.
Police say Robert Boland, 80, turned violent as officers were trying to subdue his son Martin. Officers were in the process of picking up the younger Boland in connection with an alleged verbal dispute with a third party.
When officers tried to take Martin Boland into custody, police say his father threw a heavy file folder at an officer's head. The incident sparked a wild melee that injured three officers.
Robert Boland has spent nearly two decades working with the county. He oversees the management of the county board's nearly $5 million annual budget.
County workers are remaining tight-lipped about the incident.
