A Chelsea man with six OUI convictions under his belt now faces a seventh after he was nabbed in a seriously inebriated state near a scooter parked on Nonantum Road in Brighton last night, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.
Peter McIssac, 53, was also charged with making threats of death, injury or substantial property damage because after he was booked at the Brighton State Police barracks - into which he had to be helped in by troopers because he fell out of a cruiser - he:
Allegedly became very angry and began threatening troopers, their families, and others. He allegedly stated that he had access to firearms and would “kill 15 people,” including uniformed officers, “random civilians,” and children, because he "was wronged."
McIssac, who the DA's office says blew a .185 on a breath test - more than twice the state allowed maximum - will remain locked up until a July 14 dangerousness hearing as a potential menace to the rest of us, Brighton Municipal Court Judge Myong J. Joun ruled.
McIsaac has OUI convictions from Middlesex County in 1985, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, and 1993, the DA's office reports.
The DA's office provided this account of the events leading to his arrest around 10:20 p.m:
State troopers came across McIsaac’s red 2017 Agility scooter stopped along Nonantum Road at about 10:20 last night. Its lights were off and two men were standing nearby. When troopers approached, the men walked away in different directions.
The first man told troopers that McIsaac had picked him up on the scooter earlier, and that they had stopped at a liquor store before hanging out together. They were on their way back to McIsaac’s home when the scooter ran out of gas just moments before the troopers arrived.
As troopers spoke to this man, McIsaac allegedly staggered toward them and stated that he owned the scooter. The troopers immediately noted his slurred speech and detected the strong odor of alcohol as he spoke.
“I’m very intoxicated,” he allegedly added.
Troopers ran McIsaac’s license status and learned that it had been revoked. Based on McIsaac’s unsteadiness on his feet, troopers determined that field sobriety tests could result in him falling and injuring himself. Having formed an opinion that McIsaac was intoxicated and had moments earlier been operating the scooter, troopers took him into custody.
