Peabody Police Make Three Drunk Driving Arrests This Past Weekend

The Peabody Police Department reports that it has made three arrest for violation of Massachusetts Drunk Driving Laws, including that of a Salem man which charges him with Operating Under the Influence of Alcohol, 3rd Subsequent Offense.

Thomas E. Pelletier, of Salem, Massachusetts, was arrested by Peabody Police Officers for OUI / DUI Liquor. The Peabody Police Department was alerted to look out for a white SUV that was ‘driving erratically’ after the Lynn Police Department apparently received a call about the SUV from another driver. Peabody Police Officers eventually located the white SUV, allegedly being driven by Thomas E. Pelletier, and pulled it over.

It is not known whether Peabody Police also made independent observations that Pelletier was allegedly driving erratically, nor whether he submitted to any Field Sobriety Tests or a Breathalyzer Test. He was, however, taken into custody following his arrest on charged of OUI Liquor, Third Subsequent Offense.

Peabody Police also arrested Alessio Ticcio, 55, of Revere, Massachusetts, who was charged with Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol; as well as Daniel Turcotte, for Operating Under the Influence of Alcohol and Leaving the Scene of Property Damage.

A Massachusetts OUI / DUI 3rd Subsequent Offense carries potential penalties of minimum-mandatory jail time of not less than 180 days, and up to 5 years in state prison. A conviction for a DUI 3rd Offense could also result in fines up to $15,000; suspension of the person’s Massachusetts Driver’s License, as well as the statutory cancellation of the person’s vehicle registration plates for the duration of the license suspension.
