Cape Cod Cop to Do 10 Days on Vermont Work Crew

A Cope Cod police officer is going to spend 10 days on a Vermont Department of Corrections work crew to settle charges he was caught driving drunk twice in the Burlington area.

Forty-eight-year-old Scott Kynoch, of Mashpee, Mass., pleaded guilty Friday to a single count of driving while intoxicated and negligent operation of a motor vehicle.

Kynoch is a former Burlington High School football standout. He was stopped by police in Chittenden County in May and July. In both cases he was over the legal limit for driving.

Kynoch's boss, Barnstable Police Chief Paul MacDonald, tells the Burlington Free Press Kynoch has been on "desk duty" since the first DUI report and he will face an internal administration hearing on his future with the department.
