Illegal Alien Charged with 6th Drunk Driving Offense in Massachusetts

Eduardo Alementa Torres, 48, who is from Mexico but now living in Marlborough, was arrested this past weekend for the 6th time on Massachusetts Drunk Driving Law Violations in Boxborough.

Torres was charged with OUI / DUI 5th or Subsequent Offense and was scheduled to be arraigned this morning in Ayer District Court.

According to the Boxborough Police Department, Eduardo Alementa Torres was pulled over Saturday morning for an expired inspection sticker on I-495. After approaching the car, the police officer allegedly saw an open beer bottle on the passenger seat and also noted a “strong odor of alcohol”.

After removing him from the car, Torres allegedly failed a Field Sobriety Test, and then also submitted to and failed a Breathalyzer Test, which reportedly gave a reading of 0.09%.

Although it may appear that Torres has little or no defense to contest these charges, one might notice that the officer didn’t pull his car over on suspicion of drunk driving. For example, he wasn’t pulled over for erratic driving; driving on the wrong side of road; speeding; and wasn’t involved in an accident. By all indications, it appears that Torres was operating his car in a safe manner and obeying all the traffic laws (aside for those technical violations such as expired inspection sticker, etc.).

It has also been reported that Torres, aside from his Drunk Driving conviction, had previously been deported and a fugitive by the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Following his arraignment this morning in Ayer District Court, Eduardo Alementa Torres was held without bail pending a Dangerousness Hearing.
