Tyrone Sanders, age 32, stands before Judge John Payne
For the second time this month Amherst police had to awaken a driver so they could arrest him for Driving Under the Influence.
On the one hand you would rather have a drunk asleep behind the wheel of a parked vehicle, but the problem of course is prior to pulling over and passing out, he was a scud missile.
In Eastern Hampshire District Court yesterday, after being arraigned before Judge John Payne, Mr. Sanders took the Commonwealth's offer of a Chapter 24D disposition, available only to first time offenders.
He will lose his license for 45 days, pay over $650 in fines/fees and be on probation (at $65/month) for the next year.
