A Boston man was arrested and charged with Massachusetts Drunk Driving Crimes after he allegedly rammed his car into a Massachusetts State Trooper’s vehicle.
The man, who is reportedly from Dorchester, was arraigned this morning in Boston Municipal Court for Operating Under the Influence of Alcohol.
According to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office, the operator of the vehicle slammed into the state trooper’s cruiser, which was stopped at a red light at Tremont and Boylston Streets in downtown Boston. Following the crash, the man allegedly kept driving and didn’t stop until his passenger told him to stop.
The Massachusetts State Police alleged that the driver admitted to having had “a few drinks” at a Boston bar and was arrested after allegedly failing Field Sobriety Tests.
DUI / OUI is prosecuted very aggressively in Massachusetts, and a first offense can carry up to 2.5 years in the House of Corrections. Despite Massachusetts law providing for an “alternative disposition” for first time offenders, anyone charged with drunk driving should consult with an attorney and strongly weight the pros and cons of contesting the allegations versus making any admissions.
