State police lieutenant accused of driving drunk

October 12, 2001

A state police lieutenant has been suspended with pay after his arrest on drunken driving charges in his hometown of Hampstead last month.

Until the charges are resolved, Lt. David A. Barcroft will perform administrative duties at his current assignment in the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division, said Lt. Bud Frank, a state police spokesman. Barcroft was charged with driving while intoxicated by a Hampstead police officer Sept. 24, after he allegedly was seen drinking before he moved his truck to park it in town. Lt. Terry L. Katz of the Westminster barracks said his officers didn't handle the case, but that state police arrest three or four police officers a year for driving under the influence.
