DUI Dishonor Roll

Amherst was fortunate again last weekend as APD only took one alleged impaired driver off the road. Since no female officers were on duty Amherst College PD sent one of theirs to assist with booking.

 Erica Wheeler-Perkins, age 52, arraigned before Judge Murphy

I overheard the shift supervisor alerting everyone as Ms. wheeler-Perkins, "was more than a handful" during the initial stop.

In Eastern Hampshire District Court she was released on her own recognizance and will return for pre-trial with her own attorney on March 21.

One of our problems is that on a Saturday night in a college town no female officers are on duty. Does anyone know the male to female ratio of employees within the Amherst public safety departments?

I would guess less than 15%.

I was SOOOO hoping Erica Wheeler-Perkins would come to this board and throw a fit! Based on the report, would have made for some interesting reading. Sure all the "I'll sue" and crazy threats would have come out.
