Police: Sanborton man arrested for drunken driving while hauling 4 sheep
MOULTONBOROUGH – A man hauling four sheep from Tamworth and Sandwich to Sanbornton was arrested for driving while intoxicated after police stopped him on Route 25 for having speeding and defective brake lights.
The Laconia Daily Sun reported that police began receiving complaints from Tamworth and Sandwich saying a driver was unlawfully passing vehicles of the left and driving erratically.
Police said Christopher Archibald, 34, of Sanbornton, was released on personal recognizance bail. Archibald was also cited for two yellow line violations.
The four sheep in the trailer were taken by tow truck driver Doug Murphy of Doug Murphy Towing to his business until their owner could come from Sanbornton to retrieve them.
