Dudley Will Retry Denunzio

District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced this week her intention to retry Tony Denunzio on a DUI charge. A jury couldn’t reach a unanimous verdict during his first trial; a judge acquitted him of a separate charge of driving with a blood-alcohol level above 0.08. Denunzio made headlines not because of his driving but because of the events surrounding his subsequent arrest. He, and many witnesses, claimed Officer Aaron Tudor used excessive force to place him in custody. Dudley declined to pursue excessive force charges against Tudor or resisting arrest charges against Denunzio.
