LAWRENCE, Mass. — Former Boston Bruins star Ray Bourque has apologized to his family, friends and fans for driving drunk last month.
Bourque apologized in a statement Wednesday after admitting in Lawrence District Court that prosecutors have enough evidence to convict him of driving under the influence when he rear-ended a minivan in Andover on June 24.
Bourque's "admission to sufficient facts" plea will resolve the case without a guilty finding if he successfully completes a year of probation. A judge also suspended Bourque's driver's license for 45 days.
Police said Bourque had a blood-alcohol level of 0.249, three times the state's legal limit to drive. In his statement, Bourque said he takes full responsibility for his actions.
Bourque played for the Bruins for 21 seasons, then helped the Colorado Avalanche win a Stanley Cup in 2001 before retiring.
