Maine Man Charged a 6th Time With Drunk Driving
A Maine man was arrested and charged with his sixth intoxicated driving offense, according to Massachusetts State Police.
David Peck, 57, of York, allegedly crashed his vehicle following a road-rage incident on Interstate-95 in Reading, Massachusetts. Troopers say they were dispatched to the area on Sunday after receiving reports of road rage coming from an Acura sedan traveling behind a group of plow trucks clearing the roadway.
Peck allegedly crashed his Acura into another vehicle "multiple times" before fleeing the scene and eventually crashing into the center median guardrail, landing in a snowbank.
Peck allegedly resisted arrest and attempted to restart his vehicle when approached by troopers. Police then discovered Peck's driver's license was suspended and that he held numerous other charges for operating under the influence, police said.
Police also allegedly found open containers of alcohol in the passenger compartment of Peck's vehicle.
Peck was charged with operating under the influence of liquor (sixth offense), resisting arrest, leaving the scene of a property-damage crash, reckless operation of a motor vehicle, operating with a suspended license, possession of an open container, marked lane violations, and speeding.
The release said Peck was scheduled to be arraigned at Salem District Court.
