The following is the actual YPD press statement:
Alert Business Owner Helps Police Arrest Drunken Driver for Third Offense OUI and OUI Drugs
On Tuesday, January 31, 2017 at 3:29PM, the Yarmouth Police Department received a call from a concerned Route 28 business owner that a man had entered the establishment in a drunken condition, threw money on the counter, and was belligerent. The man left the store and drove off eastbound on Route 28 in a pickup truck. The alert business owner notified YPD and gave a description of the suspect and the vehicle.
Yarmouth Police Patrol Officers spotted the vehicle and conducted a motor vehicle stop on Route 28 in South Yarmouth. The driver was identified and determined to be extremely impaired and placed under arrest. A record check revealed two prior convictions for OUI in the state of New York and will be charged with Third Offense OUI which is a felony in Massachusetts. He was processed at Yarmouth Police Department Headquarters and is scheduled for arraignment in the Barnstable District Court this morning.
The Yarmouth Police Department and the citizens of Yarmouth thank and commend the alert and concerned business owner for helping us keep our roadways safer and prevent a tragedy…
