Jason O’Reilly got into an accident just a few days ago. He rear ended an pickup truck with his vehicle in Framingham, Massachusetts and nearly forced it off the road. The police then arrived and spoke with Mr. O’Reilly. He was staggering and slurring his speech. Then he made perhaps his most critical mistake of the night. He talked to the police. In response to their questioning he said: “I had not drunk at all…I had two beers, what’s the big deal…Forget I said that. I had nothing to drink all night. To compound matters police located a partially consumed bottle of Smirnoff Ice in O’Reilly’s vehicle. Not surprisingly he was arrested. The charges: OUI, underage possession of alcohol and operating with an open container. Topping things off, O’Reilly is twenty years old. Charges are pending in the Framingham District Court.
This article suggests that the defendant refused the breathalyzer. In Massachusetts a breathalyzer refusal results in a 180 day loss of license. If you are acquitted or the case against you is dismissed you can apply for an immediate reinstatement of your operating privileges. If you are between the ages of 18 and 21 a refusal can result in a three and one half year loss of license. O’Reilly is only twenty years old. This can be a devastating consequence for anyone, particularly someone who needs a car to get to work or school.
