Drunk driver who left the scene of several accidents arrested in Holliston

Members of the Holliston Police Department arrested 35-year-old Holliston, Massachusetts resident Christopher Pope at his 1707 Washington Street residence around 6:29 a.m., said prosecutor Daniel Storms during Pope’s arraignment on Tuesday, December 27 in Framingham District Court.

Police said witnesses saw the pickup truck, which had a plow attached, that Pope had been driving pull into his driveway on the day of his arrest. He had hit several vehicles, including a semi-truck, with that plow. Pope was charged with operating a vehicle while under the influence of liquor, leaving the scene of an accident that caused personal injury, reckless driving, driving an uninsured vehicle, and driving an unregistered vehicle.

Storms made a request to Judge Jennifer Stark to hold Pope on a $1,000 bail. Pope’s legal counsel, Kenneth Gross, on the other hand, asked for a more lenient bail, as Pope is the breadwinner of his family and a bail set at too high an amount can negatively impact their lives.
