LAWRENCE (CBS/AP) — A veteran Lowell police officer was held on bail after his arraignment Monday on charges that he was driving drunk when he caused a fatal accident in Methuen early Saturday.
A judge in Lawrence District Court set $100,000 cash bail for Eric Wayne on charges including motor vehicle homicide while under the influence of alcohol in the Methuen crash.
The judge also revoked Wayne’s bail in a 2013 drunken driving case meaning he will be held for 60 days before he can post bail. If he does make bail he must stay at home and wear a GPS monitoring bracelet. The judge also set the conditions that Wayne refrain from drinking alcohol and undergo random drug testing.
