SHREWSBURY – On Monday, Sept. 12 at 12:47 a.m., Patrolman Alex Desimone of the Shrewsbury Police Department was driving southbound on South Street when he saw the two left tires of a 2004 Cadillac Escalade swerve into another lane.
According to his Statement of Facts in Support of Application for Criminal Complaint, Patrolman Desimone pulled the car over for a marked lanes violation in the area of 333 South Street.

“As officers were speaking to Mr. Rome outside of the vehicle, he gave officers consent to search the entire car,” wrote Patrolman Desimone in his Statement of Facts. “Officers then asked Ms. Clark if there was anything illegal in the car and she stated there was not. I asked her if officers could search her backpack that was sitting between her feet on the passenger floor, to which she stated that was fine.”
Patrolman Desimone said that he searched Clark’s backpack, wherein he found a second copy of her driver’s license, three used crack pipes, and a black 100,000 volt stun gun.
According to Patrolman Desimone, Clark did not have a license to carry the stun gun.
