Boston police commissioner’s son benefits from special treatment

A young man gets into a pickup truck and starts driving out of a parking garage near TD Garden. A passerby tells a police officer the driver might be under the influence of alcohol, so the officer stops him.

After talking to the driver, the officer determines the driver had been drinking, but isn’t sure if he’s impaired. Then, the driver identifies himself as Philip Davis, the 22-year-old son of Boston Police Commissioner Edward F. Davis.
