Charges dropped against officer charged with DUI
Tuesday - 6/18/2013, 9:50pm EDT
WESTMINSTER, Md. (AP) -- Carroll County prosecutors have dropped DUI charges against a Baltimore County police captain.
Forty-four-year-old Matthew McElwee of Hanover, Pa., was cited March 16 when he was stopped at a sobriety checkpoint in Hampstead. He was accused of driving a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and driving while impaired by alcohol.
Those charges were dropped Monday in Carroll County Circuit Court. State's Attorney Jerry Barnes tells the Carroll County Times (http://bit.ly/17WHAG7) that there was not enough evidence to prove the charges beyond a reasonable doubt.
Barnes said McElwee lawfully refused to take sobriety tests.
Baltimore County Police said shortly after the arrest that McElwee was driving his personal vehicle and not carrying a weapon when he was arrested. The department is conducting an internal investigation of the incident.
