QUINCY (AP) — Former Boston Bruins star Bobby Orr remains one of the most revered sports icons in the city, a fact police say his daughter-in-law tried to use to her advantage when she was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving.

Police in Cohasset say 32-year-old Chelsea Orr was arrested after she crashed her SUV Tuesday night.

Police allege she invoked her famous father-in-law’s name, told an officer she was “very powerful” and could have him fired.

She also allegedly told police she had recorded three hours of conversations with them on her cellphone which she would make public.

That got her charged with illegal wiretapping.

Orr was released on $1,000 bail after pleading not guilty on Wednesday at her arraignment in Quincy District Court.

She and her husband refused comment outside court.

      hahahahahaha –

      I’m waiting for everyone to start blaming Orr. It stands to reason that if the gov is responsible for one of his hires then Orr would be even more responsible for someone who is actually a family member.

    I’d love to hear Orr’s honest comments about this. It’s probably safe to say that if she had called him, he would not have tried to get the cop fired. Is he angry at her for using his name like this? Or is it / she so ridiculous that he just laughs?

    tsal – bad comparison. Orr had no choice in the matter, do little Deval did have a choice in who he hired and continues to employ

      sean – everyone hires people who are great on the job but have a time or times they mess up in their personal life. Orrs son had a choice who he married – anyone want to blame him for marrying this woman or his father for raising him to marry someone who acts as this woman did? Of course not – it has nothing to do with who they are – only who she is. Kind of like blaming Obama for his aunt or uncle but I don’t think people would see that either.

    How foolish of her, to assume her father in law would side with her, MAYBE ,, But I see this as yet another case of ENTITLEMENT of a famous person.. believing Just because they are related in some way to someone famous that that will automaticly get them of the hook,,,She envoked power or at least is trying to … Wiretapping wow how stupid is that….. No this is someone that beleives she has clout to do what ever she pleasesand beleives she can get away with it,,,and in some way she will,, She will pay a hefty fine, and walk away .. Its the entitled behavior or people,, Just like so many teens in this country that feel they can do what ever they want and get away with it. ..

    Obama and his kin,,, really,, thats a completely different thing,,, they are illegals and well should not be here,,, he knows that but refused to do anything about it , yet talks about it being a problem,,,,

    Entitled people believe they can do what ever they want and that no body can do a darn thing to stop them….. aaahhhhh like so many teens these days…
