All in a Day’s Work

The driver of a vehicle involved in a hit-and-run accident claimed that it wasn’t him driving the car. His alibi: he was on what he called a “random hookup” — a date with a woman he’d just met in a bar. The car is registered to his wife, who told police that he did have her car at that time. Richard Heartquist, a North Andover, Mass. attorney, claimed the car had been stolen, but never reported it. Investigators apparently didn’t believe Heartquist’s story: he was charged with leaving the scene of an accident involving personal injury, obstruction of justice, and driving with an expired license. (JW/North Andover Eagle-Tribune) ...Heartquist is now looking for a new career, a new auto insurance policy, and a new wife.
