Felony DWI Arrest
On Friday, June 24th, Officer
Jeff Burbank saw a vehicle
driving erratically, striking a
curb forcefully while parking. As
the driver exited, Ofc. Burbank
saw the man stagger and use
the truck to maintain his balance. Ofc. Burbank met with
the driver, Anthony Masso, 50,
who smelled strongly of an
alcoholic beverage. Masso stated he had “a lot” to drink, and
told Ofc. Burbank to handcuff
him. The man performed one
field sobriety test which indicated the man was intoxicated. He
was arrested and jailed. At the
jail, Masso refused to submit to
a breath test. He was charged
with 1st degree DWI (two
counts), Driving After Cancellation and Violation of Restricted
License. His bail was set at
$5,000 with conditions.
