On Wednesday in Massachusetts, Ray Bourque, a member of Hockey Hall of Fame, pleaded guilty to a drunk driving charge. In 2001, Bourque retired from the NHL.
Bourque was arrested after his Mercedes struck a van in Andover. There were no injuries, but the van suffered damage. The 55-year-old former Bruins star originally pleaded not guilty when he was pressed for charges of operating under the influence of alcohol.
Police stated that at that time his blood-alcohol level was three times the legal limit.
Under the plea terms, Bourque won’t be facing any travel restrictions and his license was rescinded for 45 days, which was actually half what prosecutors were seeking.
