Chris Boyle standing before Judge John Payne this morning
As you can tell from his Twitter feed Christopher J. Boyle, age 59, is somewhat the beer connoisseur. Too bad he doesn't subscribe to the common wisdom, "all things in moderation."
Acting on a good Samaritan cell phone tip of an "erratic operator," Amherst police pulled over Mr. Boyle near the Dunkin' Donuts on College Street just after he drove through the heart of a busy downtown Amherst Sunday evening, Fathers Day, about an hour before sunset.
The civic minded witness stated Boyle was swerving over the yellow lines while passengers in his vehicle were throwing beer bottles (Heineken's) out the window. He was arrested for DUI and drug possession. His third offense for drunk driving.
In Eastern Hampshire District Court this morning Judge John Payne entered a "not guilty" plea and continued his case until July 21 . He was released on bail with a provision (enforced by testing) to stay away from alcohol.
