Gloucester District Court: Man gets continuance on DUI charge

Gloucester District Court

Judge Joseph Jennings continued a drunken driving case without a finding, though he found that David P. Tupman, 52, of Caledonia Place, Rockport, admitted to sufficient facts in the case.

Tupman was ordered to pay $600 in court fees and assessments, attend alcohol education programming and give up his driver’s license for 45 days.

He had been arrested after an officer spotted his vehicle crossing the middle line of the road with an orange traffic cone stuck beneath it, and stopped him on East Main Street, according to a police report.

A November assault and battery charge leveled against Stacey A. Kapetanopoulos, 23, was dismissed based on a failure to prosecute.

Police had arrested Kapetanopoulos of Langsford Street after officers were called to her residence.

An assault and battery charge against 19-year-old Taylor Street resident Brandon J. Cusumano was dismissed upon failure to prosecute at a court trial Friday.

Cusumano had been arrested in November, after he was accused of pushing a 40-year-old man in his home, throwing things and breaking items at the home while intoxicated, according to a police report.

A charge of driving after a license suspension will be dismissed if the defendant, 32-year-old Brennan Williams of Western Avenue, pays $200 to the court. An additional charge against Williams will be dismissed if he pays $300 in court costs, Judge Jennings decided. Another charge against Williams, of driving an uninsured vehicle, was dismissed at the state’s request in the same case.

All of the charges resulted from a traffic stop Tuesday on Railroad Avenue, according to a police report.

A 55-year-old Rockport man will see a charge against him of driving with a suspended license dismissed if he pays court costs of $200.

Christopher R. Gillon of Lands End Lane faced the charge after a February arrest when police initially stopped him for driving about 80 miles per hour in a 55 miles per hour zone on Route 128 North. Gillon was found responsible for speeding.
