Trooper Accused of Pointing Gun, Threatening Ex-Girlfriend
ATTLEBORO — A Massachusetts state trooper accused of threatening to shoot his ex-girlfriend has been suspended without pay.
Trooper Joel Devine, who graduated from the state police academy in May 2020, is accused of pointing his service weapon at the ex-girlfriend and threatening to kill her on several occasions.
His defense attorney said the trooper “adamantly denies the accusations.”
A judge allowed Devine to be released on bail with a GPS bracelet and other conditions. He was arrested in January and is the subject of an internal investigation by state police.
