It started with an incident with his girlfriend. Massachusetts State Police Trooper Cpt. Thomas "Tom" McCarthy has been suspended indefinitely after leading Saugus police on a high-speed chase while off-duty with beer in his unmarked cruiser failed to appear in court Tuesday to face the misdemeanor charge. McCarthy was in an unmarked cruiser, refused to stop for officers, resisted arrest, had to be cuffed, had open beer cans and weapon(s) in his vehicle, was not given a breathalizer (no explanation given), didn't show up for his own arraignment - with no penatlty, has left the state to Florida and checked himself in for treatment for something - and that's okay.
