A classic example of above the law! The city of Lowell protecting it's name and reputation! Sweep it under the rug and let this thug get away with it!!!

I think it's truly sad that Ward was found not guilty. There was no doubt that he did what he was accused of so how could there be a not guilty verdict? He was on Nolettes property and how was it self defense if he threw the first punch? If he was truly in fear, which I doubt considering he's a boxer, why didn't he just leave? I guess it goes to show that if you are somebody and have money you can get away with anything!

Mickey shoulda pleaded guilty- so the movie company could make a sequil next year for the first movie. Mickey coulda made more cash for goin to jail and all the goombas he made friends wit in prison would love the attention too!

Ohhh good idea...maybe the movie company can call the judge and crack a deal for a new trial. When Mickey gets thrown in the slammer they can pay to have movie cameras set up in his cell and lower our taxes with the revenue from the movie. Mickey wouldnt mind a year in the joint to make an extra million. Its all about the cash "money".

Yea...Think of the possibilities. Mickey does Hector in Billerica. Ummm Mickey caught with a cold beer in jail provided by Lowell C.O.,s....Lemme see....Mickey does Minnie in the shower and finds out Minnie is Mike. It would make for great entertainment.

Mickey is going to be more popular than Michael Jackson by the time this is over. He's like the biggest stud in Lowell right now. I hope I bump into him in the bar soon, I'm sure he will buy me a couple beers, throw his feet up on the table, and laugh about all this crap being written here. The dude is so cool!!!

Sounds like the same Charlene Fleming Ward that I went to high school with. Some things never change, which is very sad because people hope that with age brings maturity, but obviously not in her case.

Maybe Mickey will pull an Oscar De LaHoya and come out of retirement to cash in on a couple more million to fend off all these idiots trying to fleece him out of his cash and fame with frivolous lawsuits. So what if he whacked some loser in the mouth a couple times. He probably deserved it. If some dummy started yelling at me and pointing his finger into my chest Id have no problem smackin him around either. Remember this is Lowell and anything goes until you make the cops jealous by getting more attention than them.

If your stupid enough to give a professional boxer a hard time you deserve to get a boxing lesson.

if there was something remotely good or positive to any of this then maybe it would cause someone to be "envious" but certainly not jealous. maybe you are feeling jealousy & that is the cause of your comment, but certainly not the cause of me stating my facts. thanks.

Sociologically speaking...the culture rises from the getto is what this is all about. Even Hollywood couldn't make this stuff up.
