(FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) - A member of the Sudbury Department of Planning and Community Development was cited with an OUI stemming from a May 9 incident when she allegedly drove her vehicle over the island near Concord Road, striking two signs, and colliding with a granite post.
Sources say Elizabeth Rust was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries after the early morning accident that also occurred the same evening the Lavender Asian Cuisine and Bar was cited for allowing patrons past when the restaurant's liquor license allowed.
Rust was reportedly driving home from the Lavender Asian Cuisine and Bar where she and other elected town officials had gathered after a Board of Selectmen's meeting around 10 p.m. on May 9.
A public meeting was held at the town hall on Tuesday night to discuss various issues, including the restaurant that violated their town liquor permit and the selectmen who allegedly kept the restaurant open after hours.
Sudbury Selectman John Drobinski does not believe he did anything wrong by staying at the restaurant. He believes the restaurant should have enforced the law.
The restaurant is supposed to stop serving alcohol at 1 a.m.; however, when police arrived at 1:47 a.m. on May 10 there were approximately 10 people inside the establishment.
Police responded to the restaurant that night after Rust crashed her vehicle into the island right in front of the town hall.
Selectman Drobinski's wife had reportedly called police to report her husband missing.
Sudbury Police cited Rust for her third OUI. She is scheduled to be arraigned on June 27.
