LYNN, MASS. (WHDH) – A woman appeared in court Wednesday to face charges in connection with allegations from prosecutors that she drove a US Postal Service truck while under the influence.
Meghan Scanlon was arrested and charged with OUI liquor, OUI drugs and negligent operation of a motor vehicle after police in Lynn said they found a damaged postal truck in the Lynn Common near Hanover Street on June 8.
Just under a week later, Scanlon, 31, pleaded not guilty to charges.
Prosecutors said Scanlon was following her Waze GPS when she crashed her truck into the Lynn Common, clipping trees and taking out a sign. Prosecutors said Scanlon’s blood alcohol content level was measured at .28 percent when she was arrested, three times the legal limit.
