A Massachusetts state lawmaker was arrested Tuesday and charged with drunk driving with nearly four times the blood alcohol content, a report said.
State Rep. David LeBoeuf was pulled over by state police on Interstate 93 in Quincy around 10:30 p.m. after two people called 911 to report an erratic driver on the freeway, MassLive.com reported, citing a police report.
LeBoeuf’s black Ford SUV was found damaged, and inside the vehicle, police saw nine empty water bottles and two wine cans in the front cup holders, according to the report.
Police said they noticed a “strong smell of alcohol” and noted that during a sobriety test, LeBoeuf “was unable to follow directions” and was “extremely unsteady on his feet.”
At the state police barracks, LeBoeuf reportedly failed a breathalyzer test and registered
a blood alcohol content of 0.32 – nearly four times the legal limit of 0.08.
LeBoeuf was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, negligent operation of a motor vehicle and violating marked lanes, the report said.
He was released after his acknowledgment at his indictment on Wednesday.
On Thursday, lawmakers apologized in a statement posted on Twitter for his “egregious misjudgment”.
“I am grateful there were no injuries and I acknowledge the pain I have caused my family, friends and community. I make no apologies and will work hard to rebuild people’s trust,” he wrote.
LeBoeuf added that he struggled with addiction and said he would seek treatment.
