Maynard Police Arrest Man for 4th OUI Offense
MAYNARD — Chief Mark Dubois reports that the Maynard Police Department arrested a man last night for his fourth Operating Under the Influence of Alcohol offense. This is the third time police have arrested the man for OUI in just over a month.
THOMAS MADDEN, AGE 43, OF MAYNARD, is charged with:
- OUI Liquor (Fourth Offense)
- OUI Related Offense While License Suspended for OUI
- Operating a Motor Vehicle While License Suspended for OUI
- Failure to Display Headlights at Nighttime
- Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle
On Thursday, May 5, at approximately 8 p.m., an officer working a patrol shift observed a sedan traveling at a high rate of speed in the area of 57 Powdermill Road without its headlights on. The officer recognized that the vehicle belonged to MADDEN, who had been seen by police earlier that day operating the same car with a suspended license.
Police initiated a motor vehicle stop on Powdermill Circle, and after an initial investigation, placed MADDEN under arrest without incident.
“Fortunately, no one was injured as a result of this individual’s reckless decision to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and with a suspended license,” Chief Dubois said. “We have zero tolerance for this behavior and I want to remind residents to never, under any circumstances, get behind the wheel if you have been drinking.”
MADDEN was held on $10,000 bail pending his arraignment at Concord District Court.
These are allegations. All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty.
