Drunk drivers also pose a threat to our first responders
One of the more chilling lines buried in a 40 some odd page police log has an almost air of routine to it, perhaps because it was the wee hours of Sunday morning (1:40 AM) on well traveled Rt 9, which is of course what I find so chilling:
"While on a traffic stop, vehicle almost struck me." The laconic officer pursued the offending vehicle, pulled it over and administered a SFST (Standard Field Sobriety Test) to the driver. He failed.
Arrested for DUI and Marked Lanes Violation:
Jacob Bell, 350 Ridge Rd, Athol, MA, age 23
