Tyler Chambers standing before Judge Payne
While rainy weather snuffed out the party scene over the weekend, at least one (alleged) drunk driver was a tad less impacted. Must be the alcohol.
Just after midnight Friday into early Saturday morning police and AFD responded to a two car motor vehicle accident in East Amherst resulting in injuries.
The truck driven by Tyler Chambers, age 25, crossed over the double center lines causing the crash that severed his front tire from the frame of the truck.
Undaunted (must be the alcohol) Mr. Chambers tried to flee the scene, but with only three tires hitting the road he did not make it very far.
In Eastern Hampshire District Court on Monday Judge Payne entered a plea of not guilty, assessed a bar advocate fee of $250 and continued his case until June 9.
In another DUI case Laura Natario, age 23, took a standard 24D disposition for her arrest by UMPD back on 2/21/14 near the Mullins Center with plenty of pedestrians in the area. She will lose her license for 45 days, be on probation for a year (with a $50/month fee), take an alchol education program, and pay $700 in fines.

When Judge Payne asked her if she had her final drink at a public establisment or private residence she responded, "Public establishment." When asked the name of said establishment Ms. Natario responded, "McMurphy's" in downtown Amherst.
Yes, the bar that brought us the Blarney Blowout.
