A Weymouth man was arraigned on five charges including operating under the influence as he laid in a bed at South Shore Hospital, CBS Boston reported.
Thomas Mohan, 51, who is accused of injuring a pedestrian while operating a vehicle under the influence, has pleaded not guilty to all the charges.
“The victim, who is being treated at the same hospital, has a torn diaphragm and collapsed aorta,” the Boston Herald reported. “When police arrived at the scene of the accident just before 1 p.m. Tuesday, they found Mohan ‘unsteady on his feet and swaying. He was asked if he had consumed any alcohol that day, and he denied having consumed any alcohol.’”
Mohan was reportedly so unsteady that he fell on his face.
Mohan is currently in custody at South Shore Hospital with no bail. He is due in court on March 22.
