A Somerville man was held by Dracut police and handed over to Tyngsborough police after allegedly violating a restraining order by going to the Tyngsborough home of the woman who had filed the order. Police said David Jewers, 41, was believed to be intoxicated and was also found to be hiding a bottle of clonazepam in his underwear; he was charged with possession of a Class C drug. His final charge, malicious defacing of property, came after his arrest, when he allegedly urinated in his holding cell and tried to cause a flood by stuffing a blanket into the toilet, according to Deputy Police Chief Richard Howe. Tyngsborough police checked in on the woman whose home Jewers had visited and found her to be unharmed.
