LOWELL, Mass. (AP) – A limo driver accused of being drunk while bringing a group of Lowell Catholic High School teens home from their prom has apologized through his attorney.

Brian Harrison, of Tewksbury, was released on personal recognizance after pleading not guilty at his arraignment Monday in Lowell District Court. He was charged with operating under the influence.

Harrison’s lawyer, William Harvey, said his client was “very sorry” and “extremely remorseful” about what happened on Friday night.

Police said the teens became alarmed by Harrison’s erratic driving and demanded that he let them off at a movie theater. One of the teens contacted a parent, who called police.

The 45-year-old Harrison, who was working for Lynette’s Limousine Service in Wilmington, was subsequently fired by the company.
