RYE — A Former Portsmouth, NH High School driving instructor has been arrested for the second time on a drunk driving charge.
Bruce Syphers, 61, of 7 Fairway Drive in Greenland,NH is charged with driving while intoxicated/second offense and transporting an alcoholic beverage. He was released on personal recognizance bail and will be arraigned in Portsmouth District Court on November 19th.
Police Chief Kevin Walsh said Officer Matthew Doyle was on patrol on Sept. 9 and made the arrest at 8:52 p.m. following a traffic stop.
“Mr. Syphers was traveling inbound on Sagamore Road,” Walsh said. “He did not stop at the Wallace and Long John Road intersection and instead went straight through to Long John.
In February, 2007, the New Hampshire Department of Motor Vehicles revoked Syphers’ license to be a driving instructor in the state of New Hampshire. The action followed his conviction on a drunk driving charge brought forth by Portsmouth Police.
Syphers was arrested at 2:15 p.m. Feb. 9 by PHS Resource Officer Rob Munson after driving his Ford Taurus on Andrew Jarvis Way, the road leading in and out of the high school campus. Police said, at the time, that high school employees informed Munson of suspicions that he was under the influence of alcohol and the traffic stop followed.
Following Syphers' Feb. 9, 2007, arrest, the school continued to retain the driver education services of Syphers Driving School, which is still licensed to operate. Superintendent Robert Lister said that about one year ago the school switched to Kingston-based Pro-Staff Driving School.
