(Newser) – What's that they say about no good deed? A Massachusetts man found himself under arrest after he stopped to hold the door for a police officer leaving a mall in Natick, reports the MetroWest Daily News. “The officer turned around to thank him and recognized him,” says a police spokesperson. After returning to his patrol car, the officer looked up 28-year-old Kayvon A. Mavaddat in the computer and saw that Mavaddat had outstanding warrants on charges for heroin possession, shoplifting, and driving violations. He then returned to the mall and arrested Mavaddat, who was being held without bail.
