At 9:36 PM, police made an arrest at the East Rotary in Buzzards Bay. The driver of a red 2004 Kia Sedona was stopped on Head of the Bay Road, at the intersection with the rotary. The car did not move for several minutes, causing cars to stack up behind. When an officer in a cruiser approached, the vehicle pulled away. The vehicle was eventually stopped and the driver identified as Corey L. Griffeth, 49, from Cambridge. Mr. Griffeth had a strong odor of alcohol, and officers located a half-full container of beer in his vehicle’s cup holder. A check of the vehicle with the RMV determined that the license plates belonged to another vehicle, and they had been canceled. Mr. Griffeth failed a field sobriety test and was arrested. He was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of liquor (second offense), attaching wrong license plate, unregistered motor vehicle, uninsured motor vehicle, operating a motor vehicle with license suspended, creating gridlock and possession of an open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle.
