Gloucester Police/Fire: Man faces DUI, property charges

Gloucester Police/Fire

Kaarl H. Waalewyn, a 53-year-old Eastern Point Road man, was arrested and charged with drunken driving and malicious property destruction after he allegedly punched a window at a waterfront restaurant, then drove off while intoxicated.

Police had first responded to The Gloucester House on Rogers Street on a report of an “unwanted guest” Wednesday about 10:30 p.m., and Waalewyn was driving out of the parking lot, with his headlights off as police arrived.

A woman told police Waalewyn had also “punched” the right side mirror on her vehicle after she attempted to help him off the ground after she had found him lying down before he drove off.

Officers stopped Waalewyn and he failed sobriety tests, saying “just arrest me.”

Police transported Waalewyn to Addison Gilbert Hospital for treatment before holding him in a cell at the station.

A Gloucester Fire Department ambulance “slightly scraped” a police cruiser, causing paint scratches and a “small dent,” while both departments were responding to an emergency Wednesday about 3 p.m., according to police.

The roadway was “very tight,” at the Washington Square emergency, police said. The ambulance suffered “no apparent damage.”

Police stopped a 14-year-old who was riding his bicycle on Route 128 near Exit 13 Wednesday about 7:30 p.m., and called the boy’s mom to pick him up.

The 14-year-old told police he was riding home to Essex on his bicycle, and police explained that riding on Route 128 is both illegal and dangerous.
