PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — A veteran Maine State Police sergeant facing drunken driving charges has written an email to colleagues asking them not to be angry at the fellow troopers who arrested him.
Sgt. Robin Parker wrote in the email "I have no resentment towards these men and I ask that you don't either."
He says in the email obtained by the Portland Press Herald that he wrote it after hearing that some troopers were upset that he was not "treated differently" when pulled over on the Maine Turnpike in Gray on Dec. 18.
He also says that he is embarrassed by the situation.
Parker's lawyer said he was not involved in the writing or distribution of the email, but discussed it with his client.
Parker joined the state police in 1994.
