Soutcoasttoday – BARNSTABLE — An Osterville woman pleaded not guilty in Barnstable District Court today, after she was accused during separate incidents of driving more than 100 mph on Route 132 while under the influence and driving on hockey great Bobby Orr’s Sandwich lawn, according to police and court documents.
Claire Creedon, 19, was arrested by state police early Sunday morning after police say she drove past a trooper’s cruiser at a high rate of speed, according to a police report. When the trooper tried to catch the car, he needed to drive 110 mph and estimated the car’s speed at 105 mph, according to the report.
The trooper smelled a strong odor of alcohol after he pulled over the car, and found beer cans underneath Creedon’s driver seat, according to the report. Police also found a case of beer with three full bottles inside, seven empty vodka nip bottles, and a full tequila and vodka nip bottle, according to the report.
Creedon declined to take a alcohol breath test but passenger told police she had two drinks and that she thought Creedon had much more to drink, according to police.
Creedon was charged with operating under the influence, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, being a person under 21 in possession of liquor, speeding, and obstructing an emergency vehicle.
Creedon also pleaded not guilty to malicious destruction of property worth less than $250 dollars. In September 2014 Sandwich police received a print out of a tweet from August from an account with the name Claire Creedon reading, “Just found out I gave bobby ore a lawn job Ln … This morning when I woke up I thought Christina drove home so. gotta get my life together.” Deep tire marks were found on Orr’s lawn, along with scratches to a stone wall and flattened plants, police wrote.
Hmmm well maybe I can give Claire a littttle break…
But you know what hurts the most? The lack of respect. Ok, I guess if she ever hurt or killed someone drunk driving that would have hurt the most. But it’s the lack of respect! You don’t just go around giving Bobby Ore (or Orr Claire bear) lawn jobs and then laugh it off on twitter. That’s not how Bobby Orr should be treated. The drunk driving I can excuse because I’d like to have sex with Claire but not the destruction of the greatest defenseman of all time’s landscaping. Bobby can’t be out in the yard trying to fix toppled plants, his knees are shot. Clean it the fuck up Claire, summer’s coming.
