Rust pleaded not guilty to the charge and has been subjected to random alcohol tests. Judge Robert Harbour stated she must also attend two Alcoholics Anonymous meetings a week and cannot drink any alcohol.

According to the police report obtained at the clerk’s office, Rust told Officer Erin Corey she had recently left after Town Meeting ended the night of May 8. Rust repeatedly told Corey she worked for the town.

Corey asked Rust if she would take road sobriety tests, and originally agreed. But Rust started to complain of dizziness and was transported to Emerson Hospital.

Corey noted in her report there was a strong odor of alcohol emanating from Rust, that her speech was slurred and her eyes were bloodshot.

At one point, Corey also noted Rust said she couldn't see her despite standing 2 feet away.

Sudbury police opted to cite Rust rather than arrest her that night due to staffing.

The was also ordered to release all records regarding the crash from May 9.

The prosecutor is Dannon Stacer.
