RPD Officer Christopher Prosciutto finally reached the pinnacle of local enforcement.
After a long 12-hour shift, 37-year-old Douglas Williams of Rowley Street thought he could take a break and enjoy both his Snapple and the cool brisk April air in front of the Monroe Avenue 7-11, but Officer Prosciutto wasn’t having any of it.
After Williams rightfully declined to show identification, Officer Prosciutto went into a fit of rage at record time after shouting his famous catch phrase: “Do you know who you’re talking to?”.
Prosciutto slammed William’s face against the front door, and performed his signature move: dropping a small bag of oregano at his feet. His technique was flawless.
His partner, Officer Gorgonzola, along with those in the three backup squad cars, couldn’t help but give him a standing ovation as he led the handcuffed Williams into the back of his car for his 1000th career unlawful arrest.
Prosciutto was quoted saying, “My only regret was that #1000 didn’t come at the Puerto Rican Festival, but maybe that’s for #2000.”
To celebrate the occasion, Officer Prosciutto was awarded a $25 gift card to Dunkin Donuts and a commemorative pin from Identity Evropa.
