drunk driving? and she should be setting an example because she's the wife of the chief. now to find out how she's going to get off the charges.and being the chiefs wife? i bet she does.
anyone else? loss of license, fines,maybe jail time,drunk school, etc.
i guess it's who you know and who you are.

Sad, more than anything, cause she could have killed herself along with others.

I hope you follow this story, as it will be interesting to see if any charges are ever brought against her. Unfortunately, we all see too often the "perks" of having friends - in this case a spouse - in high places. Her Husband, along with her well-connected and politically savvy co-workers, will almost certainly make her outcome a "slap-on-the-wrist" and victims of fatal DUI accidents feel defeated, once again.

"Give the girl a break! We all make mistakes....," no-we don't make "mistakes" like this women did. A "mistake" is a fender bender in a parking lot. Drinking to inebriation and driving the wrong way down a major highway (and in Leominster, Route 2 is very busy) is a criminal act.
I've never driven drunk against traffic on a busy road (or driven drunk with traffic, for that matter). This women certainly deserves to lose her license for an extended period.

People who try to commit suicide often times try to take other people with them. she could have killed a family in a head on collision. She needs psychiatric help. She may be in an abusive situation with her husband.

You raise a very good point Cheryl, she may, very well, be in an abusive relationship.

As I have mentioned a few times on this site, it is a documented fact that domestic violence happens more often in law enforcement families than it does in families from the general public.

My theory on this is that cops are so used to winning, or to coming out ahead, even when they are completely wrong or it is they, themselves who instigated the altercation; that they are ill equipped for something as simple as compromise; or give and take. The very basic things that happen every day in healthy relationships....Let's face it. Many, many cops are on a big bad ego trip.

I, myself, witnessed officer Michael Sevigny of the FPD flying off the handle and acting like an out of control boob over something of an extremely petty and minor nature. I suppose his fragile ego had been challenged, and by golly, he was going to make it clear who was wearing the mighty badge. His unwarrented display of jack-ass-erie was almost sad to witness. Clearly there was more behind it than the minor incident that had set him off on a crusade to make a fool of himself.....as I drove away from the scene of his tantrum, I could not help but wonder how he handles himself around his family members.....

Hey John Fuller...would you say that if she were driving in a drunken stupor and killed your family while they were out for a drive? It's not a mistake, it's STUPIDITY, and you should smarten up.
