About 15 minutes before the new UMass "Sober Shuttle" picked up its first passenger in the heart of the downtown, Amherst Police took a potential killer off the road ... Belchertown Road (Rt 9) to be exact.
Stopped for "marked lanes violations" (i.e. all over the road) at 1:00 AM early Friday morning and then failing a Field Sobriety Test, police arrested Joshua D. Frank, 2 Birchwood Ave, Peabody, MA, age 23 for Marked Lanes Violation and Driving Under the Influence.
From now on let's hope Mr. Frank takes the Sober Shuttle.
From the Salem News 2/5/11:
Police responded to an accident, with injuries, at Gardner Street at Seneca Road at midnight. A car driven by Joshua D. Frank of Peabody collided with a car driven by Jeana L. Bottari of Salem. Bottari was transported to the hospital.
