An off-duty Lowell Police officer was killed by an alleged drunken driver
early this morning, according to the Lowell Police Department.


Officer Patrick Johnson, 31, was riding his motorcycle about 12:23 a.m.
when he was hit by a vehicle at the intersection of Princeton Boulevard and
Foster Street in Lowell, the police department said in a press release.


Johnson, who joined the police department in 2004, was transported to
Lowell General Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.


The driver of the vehicle, Theary Chan, 26, of Lowell, was arrested at the
scene. He has been charged with motor vehicle homicide, operating under the
influence, and failure to stop at a stop sign, according to the press
release. He was also cited for an open container violation.


Chan is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Lowell District Court.

Don't usually cops who rides motorcycle wear half-face helmets?

Anyways RIP. It sucks what happens. :(
We've got a helmet law here in Mass, so yes, he must have been wearing one.
