Driver, tow truck operator charged with drunken driving
Hyannis, Mass. – Massachusetts State Police say a woman and the driver of a tow truck sent to pick up her vehicle are both arrested on drunken driving charges.
Fifty-one-year-old Patricia O’ Donnell of Marstons Mills had been stopped by a trooper on Saturday night and arrested for driving under the influence.
Then 25-year-old Brandon Fenton had been dispatched by a towing company to pick up her vehicle, but he was also arrested for drunken driving.
Police say a Hyannis News journalist saw the truck swerve over the white center lines and off the right side of the road, almost striking a pole, and recorded it on his dash cam.
Both Fenton and O’Donnell will be arraigned and have been released on personal recognizance.
Their attorneys could not be immediately identified.
