BOSTON (CBS) – An off-duty Massachusetts state trooper was charged early Saturday morning with operating under the influence.

A police officer found the trooper’s 2002 Cadillac Escalade pulled over off the road in Enfield, Connecticut just before 1 a.m.

The Enfield officer saw the driver, identified by State Police as 46-year-old Daniel Sheehan, passed out or sleeping inside.

A second officer arrived and the two asked Sheehan to perform field sobriety tests.

Based on the sobriety tests, the officers determined Sheehan was impaired.

The 10-year-veteran was arrested and charged.

Sheehan, who is assigned to the Russell Barracks, was relieved of duty and will face a duty status hearing during the coming week.

He is scheduled to appear for arraignment in a Connecticut courtroom on July 30.

The State Police Internal Affairs Section will monitor the court proceedings.
