State Police Trooper Arrested For O.U.I.

The Massachusetts State Police this morning relieved Trooper Dale Jenkins of duty after he crashed a car he was driving on Route 114 in North Andover. Jenkins was off-duty at the time of the incident. Jenkins’ passenger, an adult male, suffered severe injuries in the crash, which occurred shortly before 1:00 a.m. That passenger still remains at a Boston hospital.

Following an investigation, North Andover Police charged Jenkins with operating under the influence of alcohol and carrying a firearm while intoxicated. At the time of the crash Jenkins was operating a personally-owned car and carrying a personally-owned handgun, not his department-issued weapon.

In addition to immediately being relieved of duty, Jenkins license to carry firearms was suspended. Additionally, the State Police will conduct an administrative hearing next week to determine Jenkins’ duty status for the duration of criminal proceedings against him.

The crash investigation is under the jurisdiction of the North Andover Police Department.

Jenkins was treated for injuries at Lowell General Hospital and has been released to the custody of the North Andover Police Department. He is expected to be arraigned next week.
