Arlington Police have turned over information to the FBIs Joint Terrorism Task Force about a 2012 house party and disturbance in which Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was involved.
Arlington Police Chief Frederick Ryan said Wednesday that police responded to a report of a disturbance caused by a house party and public drinking on Paul Revere Road on the night of July 4, 2012.
At the scene, the chief said police encountered Tsarnaev, who was sitting in the passenger seat of his own Honda sedan. Ryan said the Honda was same car that was found in Watertown last Friday after Tsarnaev and his brother and alleged marathon-bombing accomplice, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, engaged in a gunfight with police.
Police said they had earlier shot and killed MIT Police Officer Sean Collier.
Tamerlan, 26, was killed in the gunbattle. Dzhokhar was wounded by escaped. He was captured in Watertown later on Friday.
In 2012 Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, of Cambridge, was not charged or cited in relation to the Independence Day incident in Arlington, but the person operating his car was cited for having an open container of alcohol in a vehicle, Ryan said.

Ryan said Arlington Police responded to the house where Dzhokhar had been to make sure he was not there.
We went and did a sort of knock-and-talk with the occupant of that home to learn what their relationship was with the person who was being pursued, Ryan said.
Ryan said police also asked when the resident last had contact with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. The chief said he could not disclose what the resident said because it is part of the ongoing investigation.
That’s the way to build your muslim street cred.
There was a Saudi National in the back seat of the Honda, but police had no reason to question him as he WAS NOT, I REPEAT, WAS NOT a “suspect” nor “person of interest”...police report he was just quietly knitting a prayer rug and produce Michelle Obama’s business card when asked for ID.
It just keeps getting better and better.
Poorly written article. The article mixes present and past events. The Arlington Honda incident is from 2012. Boston.com is the Boston Globe aka the NYT.
It seems to imply that the Honda in Arlington in 2012 was the Honda in Watertown last friday night.
Where is Al-Harbi?
