SPRINGFIELD – Michael Ververis Thursday was found not guilty of three charges stemming from an incident in the entertainment district in January 2011. Ververis, 25, who has not been incarcerated pending trial, walked quietly out of the courthouse with his lawyer Luke Ryan, family members and supporters, who had watched the four day trial.

Springfield District Court Judge Mark Mason, in the jury-waived trial, acquitted Ververis – a FedEx driver from Middletown, Conn. – of assault and battery on a police officers, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

Ryan argued Ververis did nothing wrong, but the officers charged him to cover for the fact they had used excessive force, saying at one point Ververis was choked unconscious.
