Drunk Driving Charge Dropped Against R.I. Fed Prosecutor; Justice Dept. Probing Matter

A judge dropped drunk driving charges Monday against an assistant U.S. Attorney in Rhode Island who is at the center of a controversy over whether he got favorable treatment, the Associated Press reported.

A Warwick, R.I. judge, at the request of the city attorney, dropped the charges against fed prosecutor Gerard Sullivan, who was pulled over on Thanksgiving morning, AP reported.

The city attorney dropped the charges in part because Sullivan admitted there was enough evidence to prove he refused a chemical breath test. He has lost his license for seven months.

Warwick police, according to the Associated Press, say Sullivan repeatedly told police he was a fed prosecutor and he knew the police chief. He was originally just charged with refusing to take a breathalyzer test. He was later charged with drunk driving.

AP reported that the chief has ordered an internal probe into why the prosecutor was not initially charged with drunk driving along with refusing to take the breath test.

The Providence Journal reported that the Justice Department is also looking into the allegations that Sullivan tried to use his position and his connection to the police chief to get favorable treatment when he was pulled over.

The chief has ordered an internal inquiry into why Sullivan was not initially charged with DUI.
