Yarmouth Man Pleads Not Guilty to Store Crash

YouTube

An Army veteran seriously wounded while serving in Afghanistan and Iraq has pleaded not guilty to ramming his pickup truck through the front of a Dennis convenience store and will undergo an evaluation to see whether he’s eligible for a veteran’s diversionary program.

Christopher Sprague was also ordered by a judge Monday in Orleans District Court not to drive and not to drink alcohol.

A lawyer for the 32-year-old Sprague, the son of a Yarmouth police officer, tells the Cape Cod Times his client suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and has no memory of the crash Sunday. He says he thinks his truck was stolen.

Authorities say Sprague drove through the front of the store early Sunday, forcing a customer to jump out the way, then fled the scene.
