Lundborn is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Barnstable District Court on charges of operating under the influence, child endangerment, and operating a motor vehicle with an open container, the statement said.

Lundborn was put on administrative leave as Truro police chief in 2011 after crashing his police cruiser while intoxicated, according to a Globe story written at the time. He resigned weeks later.
