A Western Massachusetts teen charged in the bullying of 15-year-old Phoebe Prince who committed suicide earlier this year has been arrested for drunk driving.
According to the Springfield Republican newspaper, Austin Renaud, 18, was arrested early Sunday morning in Holyoke and charged with operating under the influence.
He was released on $40 bail and is expected to be arraigned on Tuesday in Holyoke District Court.
Renaud previously pleaded not guilty to statutory rape in the Prince bullying case. He is one of six teens charged in the case.
Prince hanged herself January 14 after what Northwestern District Attorney Elizabeth Scheibel called “unrelenting” bullying.
