Cecil County prosecutors have charged a 26-year-old Maryland State Trooper with drinking and driving after the officer flipped his personal vehicle on Rte 279 near Elkton early in the morning on Thanksgiving Day. Authorities say the defendant faces charges of driving under the influence, driving while impaired, negligent driving and reckless driving. After the accident, he was taken to Christiana Hospital for treatment and subsequently released.

The trooper, employed by the State Police as a rescue technician in the Aviation Command, is 17 months into an initial 24 month probationary period with the Maryland State Police, and assigned to the Frederick barrack. He has apparently been suspended with pay.
