Brewer Police Officer Suspended After OUI Arrest

Brewer Police Captain Christopher Martin was in court in Bangor today and pleaded guilty to a charge of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence.The Brewer Police Department has concluded its investigation into the incident and released a copy to the media today of the official memo listing Martin’s departmental sanctions.

Martin’s vehicle was spotted on Union Street Saturday night by a passing motorist who called police and reported the car was being driven erratically. The motorist followed him until he pulled off, of his own accord, into a restaurant parking lot on Griffin Road. That’s where police caught up to him. Martin’s blood alcohol level was .17, more than twice the legal limit.

He was sentenced to 48 hours in the Sagadahoc County Alternative Sentencing Program, rather than doing jail time. The program involves counseling, community service in area schools, and time spent away from family and friends.

In addition, the Brewer police department has suspended Martin without pay for 60 days and demoted him to Lieutenant. In order to return to work, his license will have to be reinstated, he is required to undergo substance abuse counseling, and he will be on departmental probation for one year. He’s been with the department for 19 years.
