Hampton detective charged with DUI waives arraignment, pleads not guilty
HAMPTON — A police detective has pleaded not guilty to a DUI charge after crashing into the Exit 2 off-ramp sign along Interstate 95 in Hampton.
Christopher Gilroy, 37, of Exeter, waived his arraignment on Thursday in the Seabrook Distrtict Court, according to the court.
Gilroy is facing a Class B misdemeanor from his Oct. 10 arrest by state police. He is scheduled to appear back in court on Dec. 15.
Previously, as part of an investigation, Gilroy posed as a 14-year-old girl online in an operation that led to the arrest of former Nottingham State Rep. Kyle Tasker.
Defense attorneys claim the detective's DUI could come up at Tasker's trial.
