Mistrial declared in Peabody drunken driving case


Hurley went through two red lights and drove behind a business on Foster Street, followed by Rose, the officer told the jury.

Hurley was “combative” at the scene and later at the police station, spitting blood at the officers after he fell and injured his face, police said.

Hurley has taken a contentious tone with judges in nearly every case in which he has been a defendant in the past several years. He sparred verbally with a judge in 2011 over a probation condition that included alcohol treatment. During the current case he repeatedly sought to address the judge himself during pre-trial motions.

On Thursday Lowy had warned Hurley to stop interrupting him and his own lawyer during pre-trial motions, or he would be barred from attending his own trial.
