Gov. Patrick on Manhunt Aftermath: “I Got Drunk”

Gov. Deval Patrick.

People on the streets of Boston weren’t the only ones drinking following the arrest of the lone living Boston Marathon bombing suspect April 19.

Gov. Deval Patrick had a few rounds himself, according to the Boston Herald.

The Herald reports that Patrick drove to Rouge, a bistro in West Stockbridge, Mass. Saturday, April 20, the day after authorities captured suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in a boat in Watertown, where he dined alone and was served numerous alcoholic beverages.

“By the end of the meal I was actually quite drunk, by myself,” he is quoted as saying in the paper.

Patrick offered candid insight into his decision making during the manhunt, the “shelter-in-place” order and the aftermath in a Q&A session hosted by HubSpot, a Cambridge marketing firm Wednesday.

Patrick detailed discussions he had with President Barack Obama, the reasoning behind a decision to let the FBI run the investigation and the admission that he wasn’t sure when (or if) the situation would be resolved. read more

Man Sentenced to 20 Years in Jail for South End Drunk Driving Crash

Boston Police Department

A Dorchester man will serve 20 years in prison for a drunk driving crash in the South End in 2010 that left one of his friends dead.

Warren Tyler, 47, received the maximum penalty for manslaughter this week, after a Suffolk County jury found him guilty of being drunk and causing the crash that killed his friend, according to District Attorney Daniel F. Conley’s office.

Warren was found guilty of both motor vehicle homicide and manslaughter by operating under the influence in the 2010 crash that killed his friend and passenger, 46-year-old Johnny Williams, Jr.  Jurors acquitted Tyler of an additional charge of receiving a stolen motor vehicle.

Prior to sentencing, Suffolk Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Locke dismissed the charge of motor vehicle homicide on the grounds that it was duplicative of the manslaughter charge, which carries a longer maximum sentence of 20 years.  Prosecutors recommended a term of 19 to 20 years in state prison; Locke imposed a sentence of 18 to 20 years. read more
