The arrest of DUXBURY Shawn Thompsons for what would be his second drunken driving offense will not keep him from coaching Harwood’s boys hockey team as it tries to win back-to-back state championships Wednesday evening in Rod.
Acting on a tip that Thompson was driving under the influence, state police pulled him in shortly before 4:30 pm on Sunday at the intersection of Route 100 and Crossett Hill Road.
Police said Thompson, who was driving on Route 100 at the time, was taken into custody without incident, was processed for what would be his second DUI at the Middlesex state police barracks, and released on a citation.
Thompson will be charged at 8:30 am on April 8 at Barre Courthouse.
The looming court date won’t stop Thompson from holding an appointment at the nearby BOR arena at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, according to Harwood Athletic Director Chris Langevin.
Shawn will coach Wednesday night, said Langevin, describing Thompsons’ legal issues as a personnel issue he was unwilling to comment further on.
Wednesday night’s championship game against Brattleboro closes a bizarre pandemic-shortened season for Harwood’s boys’ hockey team.
It started when Thompson, who entered the season as an assistant coach, was tapped to take over from former head coach Jacob Grout after Grout was fired for sending expletives to some of his players in early February.
Grout’s ouster took place nearly a year after he coached the team to its first championship in 15 years and days before opening a perfect, 8-0, season with a 3-2 win over U-32.
While Grout collected signatures for a petition that was eventually signed by more than 1,350 people, the team continued to win by beating Middlebury 3-0 in Saturday’s semi-finals.
The next day, police received a report that Thompson was driving while driving under the influence and he was briefly detained with questions about whether he should be allowed to coach the championship on Wednesday.
Thompson was quoted for DUI in December 2012 along part of Route 100.
