A Woburn man with four prior OUI / DUI convictions was arrested in Boston on his 5th Massachusetts Drunk Driving Charge this past week.
Thomas D. McCue, 42, was charged in Boston Municipal Court with Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol, 5th Subsequent Offense, Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle, and Operating After Suspension for OUI / DUI.
According to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office, McCue was alleged speeding on Storrow Drive in Boston when Massachusetts State Police attempted to pull him over. McCue reportedly pulled over on the Harvard Bridge heading towards Cambridge, but then allegedly sped away and rear-ended a taxi driver.
When the car was finally stopped, the Massachusetts state trooper alleges that McCue refused to roll down his window, at which point the trooper smashed the window with his flashlight where he was immediately arrested.
Following being booked at the Massachusetts State Police barracks in Boston, McCue allegedly admitted to have drunk 3 glasses of wine; allegedly failed 3 Field Sobriety Tests; and also submitted to a Breathalyzer Test, with readings of 0.24%, 0.15% and 0.24%.
At his arraignment in Boston Municipal Court on these OUI / DUI Charges, McCue was held without bail pending a Dangerousness Hearing.
DUI / OUI 5th Subsequent Offense carries significant penalties in Massachusetts, including imprisonment for not less than 2.5 years and up to 5 years; lifetime revocation of your driver’s license without the possibility of a hardship license; cancellation of the vehicle’s registration and possible forfeiture of the car.
