Man arrested for second OUI
Michael J. Breen, 56, of Hillside Avenue, was arrested Monday morning for second-offense operating under the influence. He was also charged with having an open intoxicant in a vehicle and making an improper turn.
Breen was pulled over about 2:35 a.m. on Monday after an officer saw his GMC Yukon stop at a four-way intersection at Quincy and Gray streets, and then make a turn so wide the vehicle was in the opposite lane of traffic. According to the police report, Breen continued to drive over the yellow centerline for a few moments before the officer stopped the vehicle.
There were two open cans of beer in his car, and his breath smelled of alcohol, according to police. Breen told a police officer he had been drinking, according to the report. His license was seized and faxed to the Registry of Motor Vehicles.
Trespassing at Robbins Farm Park
About 12:55 a.m. on Monday, an officer was conducting a routine patrol at when he observed an individual at the park—contrary to the park’s posted 9 p.m. closing.
The man stumbled backward down the hill and fell approximately 10 feet, according to the police report. The officer sped to check if the man needed medical attention, to which he replied, “I’m OK," and, “Don’t worry about it,” according to the report.
The man could not walk straight, did not know where he was and could not tell the officer how he got to Robbins Farm Park, according to the report. He told police he thought he was still with a friend, and denied drinking alcohol or taking narcotics.
The man later admitted to smoking some marijuana and drinking two shots after 10 p.m.
The man’s mother came to pick him up from the lobby at Arlington Police station. At the time, the man believed he was in Lexington, according to the report. The mother took custody of him and drove him back to their residence.
