BETHEL \u2014 Despite commands not to drive, a state trooper charged with driving under the influence last weekend told an officer to \u201cwatch this\u201d before driving away, a police report obtained Wednesday shows. Andrew Murphy, a trooper assigned to the Troop A barracks in Southbury, is facing charges of operating under the influence of alcohol, disobeying the signal of an officer and interfering with an officer. He was released from custody after a friend posted $500 bond and is due to appear Monday in state Superior Court in Danbury. Murphy, a state trooper since July 2019, has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation, state police officials said. In a police report obtained by Hearst Connecticut Media, Bethel police said Murphy repeatedly told them he was a state police officer, and claimed they were hurting \u201cone of their own\u201d in a expletive-laden interaction. The report also said Murphy refused a urine test, and was uncooperative during questioning after his arrest, forcing officers to repeatedly ask him to stop yelling, according to the report. The incident began around 2:10 a.m. Sunday when a patrol officer spotted Murphy standing by the open door of his Mazda sedan in the parking lot of a 7-Eleven on Stony Hill Road, according to the report. As the officer approached, he reported that he saw Murphy was having difficulty keeping his balance, the report said. He shouted at Murphy to ask if he was all right, and was told in \u201cvery slurred speech\u201d that he was fine, according to the report. The officer told Murphy he looked like he needed a ride and \u201cdid not want him to be driving,\u201d the report read. When the state trooper got into his car, the officer wrote in the report that he yelled at him to stop and not to drive, but Murphy told him \u201cwatch this, watch me!\u201d Murphy then pulled out of the lot without wearing his seat belt and drove to his home about a mile away, the report said. When the officer spotted a tire on Murphy\u2019s car go off the road, he put on his lights and siren to pull Murphy over, but he did not stop, the report said. Along the way, the officer claims Murphy was \u201cdrifting\u201d around turns and driving at around 10 mph, the report said. When Murphy pulled into the driveway of his home, the officer requested backup. As Murphy got out of his car, he \u201chad such poor balance \u2026 he needed to brace himself on his vehicle,\u201d the report said. When the officer asked Murphy why he didn\u2019t stop, he told the officer he \u201cwanted to go home,\u201d and pointed to his Connecticut State Police cruiser in the driveway, according to the report. The officer wrote in the report that he smelled \u201ca strong odor of alcoholic beverage coming from Murphy\u2019s breath,\u201d and that the trooper told him he had had four drinks that night, the report said. The officer conducted a field sobriety test, during which Murphy told police he needed an ambulance because \u201ceverything\u201d hurt, the officer wrote in the report. When police questioned Murphy about whether his firearm was in the car, he became aggressive and began yelling, according to the report, claiming Bethel police were \u201c(expletive) one of your own.\u201d He was transported to Danbury Hospital before being taken to the Bethel Police Department and processed, according to the report. About two hours after arriving at the police station, the officer reported that \u201cMurphy began talking with me and appeared able to gather his words better than before. Murphy began asking me questions about the motor vehicle stop and how he ended up getting arrested.\u201d The questions included how Murphy ended up at the 7-Eleven, the officer wrote in the report. Murphy is not the only state police trooper to face a DUI charge in recent years. State police charged one of their own, Sgt. John McDonald, with driving under the influence in 2019. State police said McDonald was leaving a retirement party for another officer at a Brewery in Oxford when he drove through a stop sign and struck a car carrying a woman and her daughter. McDonald pleaded nolo contendere to to two counts of second-degree reckless endangerment last month as part of a plea agreement that will allow him to complete a pretrial alcohol education program and have the DUI charge dismissed. State police said Wednesday McDonald remains on administrative suspension.
