DORCHESTER, Mass. — As a U.S. Army Special Operations sergeant Timothy Walsh was awarded an Army Commendation for Valor for storming a heavy machine gun post that had pinned down his men, but as a state trooper his life careened out of control early yesterday morning in an explosion of booze, car crashes and gunfire.
Walsh, 41, an 18-year veteran of the Massachusetts State Police, is accused of pointing his gun at a Boston cop in a bizarre sequence of events that left him facing charges of assault with a dangerous weapon, illegal discharge of a firearm and operating under the influence. He is expected to be arraigned tomorrow.
