State trooper charged with OUI
BOURNE, Mass. (WHDH) -- An off-duty state trooper has been charged with a single count of OUI after witnesses said he was driving his pickup truck erratically.
State police arrested Robert Gilmore, 38, at about 2 p.m. Monday after locating his gray Toyota Tundra -- the vehicle that had been observed driving erratically -- at Falmouth Toyota in Bourne.
Following an investigation by state police, Gilmore was charged with a single count of OUI.
Gilmore, a trooper who was assigned to the Middleboro Barracks, had been placed on injured reserve effective Monday, five days after he reported suffering a knee injury while working at the barracks, state police said.
At the time he reported his injury, he was on restricted duty following a previous allegation of a violation of department rules and regulations, according to state police.
Gilmore will be arraigned Tuesday in Falmouth District Court.
