Church Bishop Arrested for DUI

Church Bishop Arrested for DUI

ABC News reported that Robert McManus, a 61 year old bishop in Worcester, Massachusetts, was arrested over the weekend on a DUI charge after an alleged hit-and-run accident in Rhode Island. McManus was arrested on Saturday evening after a witness called the police and followed him to his vacation residence. He released a statement, apologizing for his behavior: “I made a terrible error in judgment by driving after drinking wine at dinner…there is no excuse for the mistake I made…” 

McManus will be summoned for a court hearing in South Kingstown, Rhode Island for DUI and hit-and-run charges. Sean Corrigan, Narragansett Police Captain, stated that McManus refused to take a blood alcohol test and received another legal charge for that. It was noted that McManus had been a leader of the Roman Catholic Diocese in Massachusetts for more than five years. Addtionally, he had been a chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Education and once gave an invitation to U.S. Senator Edward Kennedy’s widow to deliver a commencement address at a Catholic school in Paxton.
