Mother’s Against Drunk Driving will be honoring a Braintree police officer this week for his efforts to get drunk drivers off the road and reduce the risks of being involved in a drunk driving accident in Boston and the surrounding areas. The Massachusetts arm of the nonprofit will present the officer with the Drive for Life Award at their annual breakfast gathering, according to the Braintree Patch.
“I have no doubt that your actions in drunk driving and underage drinking enforcement are making our community safer and are protecting our most valuable resource, our children,” said Police Chief Paul Frazier.
Our Boston drunk driving accident attorneys would like to continue to raise awareness in residents of the severe risks behind driving under the influence and it can put you and other motorists at an increased risk for serious injury. The most recent drunk driving bust of the Braintree police department happened just last Wednesday evening.
This Braintree car accident happened at the intersection of Granite and Pond streets. The 23-year-old driver has been arrested and charged with operating under the influence of alcohol, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and leaving the scene of an accident. Police reportedly found him hiding out just a short distance from the accident.
“When officers arrived, they found a Chevrolet Tahoe in the intersection, but no one around,” said Police Chief Russell Jenkins. “As officers began to search the area, a passing motorist directed them to the rear of the River Bend condos, where they located Mazur-McDonnell.”
The driver’s companions submitted statements that led police to believe he had been driving while intoxicated.
“Mazur-McDonnell appeared to have been drinking and did not cooperate with officers when they questioned him,” Jenkins said. “He resisted officer’s efforts to handcuff him and it ultimately took several officers to take him into custody.”
That driver is to be arraigned on the charges in Quincy District Court.
