Police chief roasted for charity

Continue reading below

Deputy Police Chief Robert Devine says there is no truth to the rumor that Police Chief Paul Shastany will bring a Taser to defend himself against the spirited attacks expected when Shastany is roasted for charity. “I’m sure he’d like to bring along something to help defend himself, but we’re not going to allow it,” said Devine. “I’m sure he’ll be allowed to say a few words in his own defense once we’re done with him.” A portion of the proceeds will benefit the charity Shastany has selected: Cops for Kids with Cancer. In addition to Devine, the roasters will include former town manager Francis Crimmins, Fire Chief Mark Dolloff, Stoughton DPW Superintendent John Batchelder, Selectman Steve Anastos, former selectman John Anderson, and Ken Shastany, the chief’s brother. The roast will take place Friday from 7 to 9:30 p.m. at the Portuguese National Club. Tickets are $25 and available at Windsor Tire, Copy Inks, and at www.stoughtonma.com.
