A Rhode Island Assistant U.S. Attorney who was charged with refusing to submit to a breathalyzer test and driving under the influence surrendered his driver’s license on Tuesday as his case proceeds in traffic court, The Associated Press reports.
On Thanksgiving morning, Gerard B. Sullivan was stopped by police in Warwick, R.I., after two motorists contacted police about the driver of a BMW — identified as Sullivan — who they said was driving erratically. Sullivan was charged with failing to take a breathalyzer test, but he was not initially charged with driving under the influence. The police report said Sullivan informed the officers of his prosecutorial job numerous times, told the officers he knew the police chief and asked if there was “anything he could do.”
The incident is being investigated by the Justice Department.
Sullivan was ordered by a Traffic Tribunal judge to give up his license as the case proceeds in traffic court, the AP reports.
