SUDBURY, Mass. (WHDH) — The Sudbury police chief has resigned after being arrested for drunk driving.

In a statement the Sudbury town manager said in part, “Last evening Chief Glavin was involved in an out of town, off-duty incident which led to this decision. (At the time of the incident Chief Glavin was operating a Town vehicle). Chief Glavin served the community with distinction for over twenty years and we wish him nothing but the best as he deals with whatever personal issues he must address.”

Glavin was arrested Thursday night in Tyngsboro. He was arraigned on the charges earlier on Friday.
