A Massachusetts man whose license had been revoked due to previous charges of drunk driving fell asleep while being questioned by police, Springfield Police said to NY Criminal Lawyers.
The 34-year-old Springfield man was arrested in Indian Orchard, Mass., early one morning at around 2 a.m.
A Springfield police sergeant told NY Criminal Lawyers that officers observed the suspect pull a BMW into a plaza and park his vehicle next to a dumpster. The car had heavy damage to the front end.
There had already been a number of break-ins in the area, which prompted officers to investigate, to make sure there was no criminal activity. The suspect spotted the police and ran away to hide in some tall grass before police caught up. He was given a field sobriety test and asked a number of questions, during which the suspect fell asleep.
The suspect was asked at one point why he had run away from the police. According to the police sergeant, the suspect said “because I was drunk.” The sergeant explained to NY Criminal Lawyers that the suspect also admitted to using cocaine.
Inside the car, bottles of beer and liquor had been found, some of them already empty.
The suspect had already been arrested for operating under the influence in 2006 and again in 2009. The sergeant found the suspect’s driver’s license had already been revoked due to OUI.
The suspect has been arrested for charges of DWI (liquor), OUI (drugs), operating a vehicle without a license, resisting arrested, and an open container violation. He will be arraigned in Springfield District Court.
