A longtime top aide to Gov. Deval Patrick was busted on drunken driving charges over the weekend and has been put on unpaid leave, the Herald has learned.
Ron Bell, the governors $97,000-a-year community affairs director, was arrested at 3:30 a.m. Saturday in Brookline after being stopped for alleged erratic driving, police said.
Police said Bell, 48, was swerving and nearly hit a median strip on Boylston Street before he was pulled over. He had a moderate odor of alcohol, his eyes were glassy and bloodshot, and he failed three field sobriety tests, according to a police report. Bell refused to take a Breathalyzer test, police said.

If I worked for those Marxist bozos, I’d drink, too.
This in Mittsachusetts.
A community organizer goes wild.
This Bell guy simply drives drunk but with Patrick's crowd you just never know what to expect.

Shit, what were they doing, grading him on a curve?
Must be racial profiling (Case dismissed)
It is racist to hold Black people responsible for anything.
One of Holder’s people!
“This Bell guy simply drives drunk but with Patrick’s crowd you just never know what to expect.”
He’ll claim he was taking Ambien, too...you’ll see, as the story unfolds.
I’m sure even though suspended, the perp will still get time towards the magic “P” word - PENSION!!!
Cops acting stupidly again?..........
What do these people think they are?.......Kennedys??
This is PURE racial hatred by the police acting “stupidly”. Hey...he didn’t hurt anyone. Maybe he should have a lot of beers with nobama and the cops at the White House.
yup, Howie was mentioning this in 6pm hr
oops, thought this was about the John & Michael Connolly situation! When I saw that word “pension”...
