HAMPTON, N.H. (AP) - Authorities say a Hampton, New Hampshire, police detective has been charged with driving while intoxicated after he allegedly twice crashed his vehicle into a guardrail.

State police responded to the accident on Interstate 95 northbound at the Exit 2 off-ramp in Hampton on Monday night. They found a pickup truck operated by 37-year-old Christopher Gilroy blocking a portion of the off-ramp.

Gilroy is a 16-year employee of the department and is president of the Hampton Police Association union. The Portsmouth Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2dR2sqx) Deputy Chief David Hobbs said he couldn’t when asked if Gilroy has been placed on leave.

It wasn’t immediately known if Gilroy had a lawyer and a listed phone number couldn’t be found for him.
