WORCESTER – A Worcester woman charged with driving drunk when she rear-ended an SUV driven by the commander of the Massachusetts State Police has pleaded not guilty.

Donna Sclamo pleaded not guilty at her Superior Court arraignment on Wednesday to charges including operating under the influence, fifth offense, and driving with a suspended license. She was ordered held on $10,000 cash bail.

Police allege the 51-year-old Sclamo was drunk on October 11 when her car struck the unmarked SUV driven by Col. Marian J. McGovern in Shrewsbury. Neither woman was hurt.

If Sclamo makes bail, she is required to remain under home confinement with electronic monitoring and to remain alcohol-free.

Sclamo has publicly apologized.

    5th offense DUI, are you kidding me? She was probably so drunk she probably doesn't remember hitting him and probably also forgot her license was suspended, and probably forgot she was behind the wheel and driving a car...

    She makes a public apology but still claims she is not guilty....right. This menace needs to be put away this time for a year or two so she can finally get it through her head she has a very bad alcohol problem and maybe she can take the AA program while in jail this time. I mean come on, of all people to hit she picks on the head of the State Police!
