PORTLAND, Maine — A Maine state trooper cited for drunken driving by a fellow trooper has pleaded guilty.

A judge on Tuesday fined Robin Parker $500 and suspended his driver’s license for 90 days. The Department of Public Safety also suspended him for two months without pay and demoted him from sergeant to trooper.

Parker was issued a summons for drunken driving after he was stopped on Dec. 18 on the Maine Turnpike in Gray after a motorist called to report that his vehicle was being driven erratically. The Portland Press Herald reported that he took responsibility for his actions on Tuesday in court in Portland.

In Maine, it’s illegal to drive with a blood-alcohol content of 0.08 percent or greater. Parker’s blood-alcohol content was 0.14 percent.
