    Man wearing 'This guy needs a beer' shirt charged with DWI after crash in front of police station

    KENSINGTON - An alleged drunken driver wearing a T-shirt with the phrase "This guy needs a beer" was arrested after crashing his car in front of the Kensington Police Department Friday night.

    Joshua Tackett, 29, of Seabrook was charged with driving while intoxicated following the crash that happened just before 9 p.m. on Amesbury Road.

    Police Chief Scott Sanders was on duty at the time but wasn't at the station when Tackett lost control of a Chevy Cruz while heading south on Amesbury Road.

    According to Sanders, who responded to the scene, Tackett crossed into the northbound lane and went off the road. He drove through a stonewall and a granite post before after striking a utility pole and getting tangled up the in the pole's guide wires.

    His vehicle sustained major damage. The stonewall and granite post were also heavily damaged.

    Tackett suffered minor injuries and refused medical treatment at the scene.

    Sanders said it appears speed and alcohol were factors in the crash.

    "He's incredibly lucky he wasn't seriously injured and fortunate another vehicle wasn't traveling northbound at the time or it could have been catastrophic," Sanders said.

    Sanders said Kensington has seen an increase in the number of serious accidents this year, including a rollover in February that killed three best friends.

    Malachi Davis, 21, and Hunter Vars, 21, were killed at the scene of that crash while a third victim, Jack Perreault, 20, died days later in the hospital. The young men, all from East Kingston, were traveling on North Haverhill Road when the black 2001 Toyota 4Runner they were riding in missed a right-hand curve and left the roadway, state police said. The SUV hit several trees and rolled over several times, ejecting the three friends.

    Sanders urged motorists to slow down and put down their hand-held devices for safety. He also stressed the importance of finding designated drivers to avoid an alcohol- or drug-related crash.

    Kensington police were assisted at the scene Friday night by the Hampton Falls Police Department and Kensington Fire

    It was nice of him to crash right by a police station. Most people aren't so thoughtful.
