John Lundborn, the chief of the Truro Police Department has been charged with operating under the influence of alcohol. According to the town administrator chief was arrested Friday night where he was believed had been intoxicated. Chief Lundborn was involved in a one vehicle accident at around 930 last Friday. Apparently the chief was also driving a police cruiser that was involved in the accident.
According to the police report Truro police were notified of the motor vehicle accident from the Cape Cod national seashore Ranger. When police arrived on the scene they observed the chief in the driver seat of the car his windshield crack in the airbags deployed. The chief had made admissions that he drank a lot and he displayed the physical signs of alcohol use. According to officer Danziger the chief was intoxicated and would not be able to safely perform field sobriety tests. The chief was then arrested.
The Cape Cod Times posted a copy of the police report on its website today. I and the opportunity to read the police report and I in no way think that the police are trying to cover for the chief. The report seems to me be quite thorough including unflattering statements the chief made. I see a lot of police reports and I believe this is very typical for an OUI stop.
