BOSTON, Mass. (WHDH) -- State Representative Carlos Henriquez arrived in court Monday morning, accused of attacking a woman, hitting her and holding her against her will in a car.
Rep. Henriquez booking photo, taken around 5 a.m. Sunday, was a glimpse into the alleged assault and late night arrest that could impact his political career.
The 35-year-old Dorchester State Representative was charged with domestic kidnapping and domestic assault battery for an alleged incident that took place in his rented Zip Car.
Police say a female friend was riding in the car with him at around 4 a.m. when they got into an argument. She told officers she wanted to get out of the car but Rep. Henriquez wouldn't let her. She also told police Rep. Henriquez hit her. When she finally got out of the car near Huntington Avenue, she flagged down a Northeastern University officer.
Representative Henriquez posted bail, but nobody answered at his home.
Governor Deval Patrick was asked about the alleged incident and said it's concerning.

Or do I really need to ask?
The Dock beats up a Chester and the polizze call it domestic abuse. Shucks, he was just slapping her upside da haid. She had it coming.
yes he is and no you don’t
“Riding around at 4:00 AM...”
Just like most folks do.
A Zip Car eh? What a sport.
Howie Carr is back from vacation today so he’ll open the show with the Pie Firing Squad. Of course this will only last until the four o’clock hour when YES The Death Pool will be open. And no, Ernest Borgnine did not count. Because he passed in a Lame Duck Death Pool.
“Rep. Henriquez booking photo, taken around 5 a.m. Sunday, was a glimpse into the alleged assault and late night arrest that could impact his political career.”
Shoot, in Assachewits...they usually kill em don’t they? Dead girls cant talk. Ded Kennedy (D-HELL) “the Liberal Lyin’ of the Senate” showed them all how it was done and might still get re-elected, posthumously. He might file his candidacy papers on asbestos forms later this month.
Let's play "she said, he said", boys and girls.
"Give me my money!"
"I ain't paying you nothin', ho! Don't you know who I am? Get out of my car!"
"I ain't gettin' out till I get my money!"
Smack, smack..."Get out, b|tch."
Just my interpretation of events that usually occur at 4:00AM.
A "friend" would demand to be taken to their home, not just let back out on the street at 4:00AM.
“Is he a democrat? “
Absolutely no mention in the article, must be Libertarian or peace and Freedom (or Guns and Dope?)
What is a zip car? A compressed auto? Is it like a .rar truck or .tar airplane?
>>Is he a democrat?
Or do I really need to ask?<<
Actually, if you read the entire article, you WOULD have to ask, or at least Google his name, since nowhere do they mention his party affiliation.
They do, however, refer to him as “Rep. Henriquez” three times in the article. Interesting how easy a careless reader could turn that into “Republican Henriquez,” no?
I wonder if “Republican” and/or “GOP” would show up in the article if he had been a Republican?
(By the way, I did Google him before writing this comment, since the reporter on the article didn’t feel the need to supply the information—which was probably the first question asked by almost everyone who read the article, incidentally. The most interesting part of his bio: “Profession: Community Organizer/Legislator”)
And they say nothing good happens after 2 a.m.
You can tell because if he was R, it would be bolded in the headline.
Those were my thoughts as well. “Female friend” covers a lot of territory though.
> assault and late night arrest that could impact his
> political career.
Since the perp is a DemocRAT in Massachusetts, the only affect criminal prosecution can have on his career is to enhance it.
“Profession: Community Organizer/Legislator”?
THAT’S a Liberal industry! Don’t they make ‘community organizer’ wigets?
Boston Herald clearly said he’s a Dem
>>State Rep. Carlos Henriquez (D-Dorchester) will remain free on $1,000 cash bail after pleading not guilty this afternoon in Roxbury District Court to charges that he held a former girlfriend against her will early yesterday morning and assaulted her in a rented Zipcar when she tried to get away.
Henriquez, 35, left the court without speaking on the advice of his attorney Stephanie Soriano-Mills, who told reporters, Rep. Henriquez adamantly denies these allegations. Frankly, hes shocked.
Henriquez has been ordered to stay away from the alleged victim, the Arlington home of her mother and when she is on the campus of the University of Massachusetts Boston, though it was not made clear whether she is employed there or is a student.
That’s rapper , “Ice cube” !(from the Coors commercials)
