DUI Dishonor Role

APD administers FST on Sunday 4:15 PM

Yesterday around 4:00 PM, among a swarm of returning college students, one young lady called 911 to report an "erratic driver" in a gray mini van coming towards town center from the north (Pine/Bridge streets).

The van took a left on East Pleasant Street and assumed a straight line course, although occasionally "all over the road," towards the heart of a bustling downtown Amherst.

Amherst police intercepted the vehicle at the very outskirts of town center and had her pull over in the parking lot of "The Pub," where they administered a "Field Sobriety Test".  She failed. 

Arrested for Driving Under the Influence, Operating to endanger and reckless driving:

Maria C. Domenici, 229 Leverett Rd, Shutesbury, MA, age 64

You don't have to be a college kid to get drunk although odds are good your less responsible when younger. What does this arrest say about this old lady?

Careful there Wally, what goes around comes around.

I don't drink but I am getting older and I like it. Everyone makes a mistake. She made hers.

And she will get a second chance.

I worry about the innocent folks interacting -- through no fault of their own -- with a drunk driver, and NOT getting a second chance.
