BANGOR, Maine (AP) - A Maine prosecutor arrested on a druken driving charge has been placed on administrative leave.
Thirty-three-year-old Brendan Trainor of Hampden has been charged with operating under the influence of intoxicants.
Trainor, a Penobscot County assistant district attorney, was stopped by Hampden police before being taken to jail last week. District Attorney R. Christopher Almy told the Bangor Daily News Trainor's blood alcohol level was 0.21 percent, more than twice the legal limit of 0.08 percent.
Almy said he expects the case to be transferred to 5th District Court in Belfast to avoid any possible conflict of interest in Penobscot County. Geoffrey Rushlau, district attorney in Waldo County, and his staff will handle the case.
Trainor has worked in the district attorney's Bangor office for three years. He has no criminal record.
