Northampton man will not be prosecuted after bar disturbance

Posted: Updated:

The Northwestern district attorney has decided not to prosecute a man who was arrested during a bar disturbance in Northampton.

Jonas Correia was arrested in March outside Tully O'Reilly's on Pearl Street for resisting arrest.

Authorities say they want to change the disorderly conduct charge from a criminal to a civil violation.

The arrest got attention after the video was posted on YouTube.
