Gary Zerola, a former prosecutor and repeatedly accused rapist, has been arrested again: this time for assault and battery on a police officer and other charges, including public urination after the Celtics victory celebration. The man once named one of People’s magazine’s nation’s 50 “most eligible” bachelors is once again facing trial.
Zerola was arrested 1:45 a.m. An officer said that he spotted Zerola urinating in public and when confronted Zerola struck him and ran away. a
Zerola, 36, was acquitted in January 2006 of attempted rape and other related charges involving a 19-year-old woman in his apartment. Then in March 2008, he was acquitted of charges of four counts of rape of another 19-year-old woman in his Boston apartment. Additional rape charges against Zerola were dropped in Miami, where he had been accused of assaulting an 18-year-old university student at a Miami Beach hotel.
