Mass. state trooper on leave charged with OUI


( – A Massachusetts State Police trooper, currently on injured leave, has been charged with operating under the influence of alcohol after witnesses reportedly saw a pickup truck being operated erratically on Route 28 in Bourne.

Robert Gilmore was arrested around 2 p.m. after locating his gray Toyota Tundra – the vehicle that had been observed operating erratically – at Falmouth Toyota in Bourne. He has been charged with a single count of OUI.

Gilmore, a trooper who was assigned to the Middleborough Barracks, had been placed on injured reserve effective Monday, five days after he reported suffering a knee injury while working at the barracks.

At the time he reported his injury, he was on restricted duty following a previous allegation of a violation of department rules and regulations.

Gilmore will be arraigned Tuesday in Wareham District Court.
