Today’s Globe story about Newton resident Jabari Asim, who police say they pulled over, but but who claims he can prove wasn’t there, is both troubling and confusing.
Asim bought the car for his wife, he said, so it is registered to him, but he does not drive, and was at Emerson at the time the citation was issued. Shaylin Hogan, the administrator in his department, said she saw Asim “engrossed” at his desk when she left the office at around 5:15 p.m. Cellphone GPS information Asim provided to The Globe shows his phone at his office at Emerson from 9:56 a.m. to 6:25 p.m. on June 22. And, he said, at the time the alleged infraction occurred, his wife had the car and was inside Target, with the car parked in the lot. He provided a receipt timestamped for 6:20 p.m.
