A Massachusetts State Police Trooper was charged this past week with Drunk Driving Charges.
The defendant state police trooper was arraigned in Falmouth District Court on charges of Operating Under the Influence of Alcohol.
According to prosecutors, the Bourne Police Department received two 911 calls concerning an erratic driver and for an intoxicated man who was allegedly trying to run a female off the road. The state police trooper, allegedly traveling at 80 miles per hour, almost struck two cars.
Ultimately, the defendant state trooper was pulled over at a car dealership on Route 28 and then taken to the Massachusetts State Police barracks in Bourne. Taking over this investigation from the Bourne Police Department, the Massachusetts State Police trooper asked him to submit to field sobriety tests and take a breathalyzer test. The defendant state trooper refused the chemical breath test.
According to state police spokesman, the defendant trooper was also currently on ‘restricted duty’ following a previous allegation of violation of police department regulations.
