Tow truck driver busted when called to pick up first offender's vehicle...

From Massachusetts State Police:

At about 2:20 a.m. on Saturday morning, Trooper Edward Alldredge made a motor vehicle stop on Route 28 in the town of Barnstable, which resulted in the arrest of the operator, PATRICIA O’DONNELL, 51 of Marston Mills, for operating under the influence of liquor. Trooper Alldredge requested Capeway Towing to tow her vehicle. Capeway Towing dispatched tow truck driver BRANDON FENTON, 25, of Hyannis who too was arrested for operating under the influence of liquor.

A Hyannis News journalist was traveling on Willow Street and Yarmouth Road when he witnessed the tow truck swerve over the solid white center lines and then off the right side of the road almost striking a pole. The journalist informed Trooper Alldredge he had recorded it with his dash cam and uploaded the video footage to Youtube.

As a result of an investigation, Trooper Alldrege and Trooper David Phan placed FENTON under arrest for operating under the influence of liquor and transported to the Yarmouth Barracks where he was booked on the following charges of OUI liquor, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, and committing a marked lanes violation.

FENTON was bailed on personal recognizance and scheduled to be arraigned in Barnstable District Court today.

O’DONNELL was bailed on personal recognizance and scheduled to be arraigned in Barnstable District Court today.
