Banker busted for driving drunk and showing off gun: Police
A Pembroke man was arrested for allegedly driving around Boston under the influence while brandishing a gun.
Guy Miller III is pleading not guilty to charges of operating under the influence as a second offense and carrying a firearm while intoxicated, the Boston Globe reports.
Miller allegedly pointed a gun at motorists while driving in the Thomas P. O’Neill Jr. Tunnel last week, the story continues.
“What we have is an allegation that he was observed holding a recently purchased firearm and looking at it, not pointing it at anyone specifically,” Miller’s lawyer, Jeffrey K. Clifford said. “And there is absolutely no evidence that there was any road rage incident or any other incident that would have resulted in that type of activity.”
Someone who called District Attorney Daniel F. Conley’s office said that the man “was turning the gun side to side as if admiring it, pointing it at the floorboard, and using his right hand to point it toward his passenger side window at other drivers.”
When police confronted Miller, he allegedly told them “There are people doing bad things out there, and I’m not one of them,” according to Conley’s office.
