Salem man who hit cruisers, injured officers held on $1.5 million bail
Jason Grosky, Salem police prosecutor, asked for the seven-figure cash bail, noting that Figueroa was able to post $125,000 cash following his 2012 arrest in a pursuit-related case.
Salem police were called to a complaint about a Mercedes “all over the road” along Rockingham Park Boulevard at 9:46 p.m. on Friday. Another driver complained to police that he was cut off three times by a white Mercedes, police said.
Police said backup units then arrived to assist Officer Michael McCarthy, whose car was struck when Figueroa backed into him on Tiffany Road. The 30-year-old then struck three parked cars along the road and proceeded to injure Officers Brian Lawrence and Eric Pappalardo when he rammed into their cruisers, police said.
Figueroa’s arrest on Friday night bore striking similarities to his last confrontation with Salem police two years ago, which resulted in a largely suspended yearlong jail sentence, according to court records.
During the initial traffic stop on Main Street, officers found that Figueroa’s girlfriend was bleeding from the head and complaining of an injured ankle, according to a police affidavit.
“He jumped from a second-floor window and managed to escape and drive off,” Grosky said.
