Boyenga has a prior conviction in St. Mary’s County for Driving While Impaired by Alcohol.

On February 7, 2017, Deputy William Ray, of the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office stopped Boyenga in the same Chevrolet Corvette involved in the 2019 crash and ticketed him for driving 89 MPH in a 50 MPH zone. The traffic stop occurred on Route 5, in the area of Bay Ridge Road, in Lexington Park.

Boyenga entered a guilty plea in April of 2017 for the Driving While Impaired by Alcohol and was given Probation Before Judgment.

Boyenga’s probation ended on October 28, 2018

The St. Mary’s County Sheriffs Office continues to investigate the incident, and updates will be provided when they become available.

4/2/2019: On Monday, April 1, 2019, at approximately 10:30 p.m., police fire, and rescue personnel responded to the area of Point Lookout Road and Willows Road in Park Hall, for the motor vehicle accident reported serious with entrapment.

Crews arrived on scene to find the single vehicle, a 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport 2LT off the roadway and in the woods with Verizon lines, and a tree down.

The single occupant was located in the vehicle by police and was believed to be trapped, but fire and rescue personnel learned from dispatchers that he just did not want to get out of the vehicle.

The single occupant/operator was transported to an area hospital with minor injuries.

St. Mary’s County Sheriffs Office continues to investigate the incident.

Speed and alcohol appear to be contributing factors.

Updates will be provided when they become available.

    He needed to sober up for his tests before he got out.

    I’m sure he will be drunk again real soon. As soon as he realizes he just totaled his 60,000.00 car

    • Anonymous on April 2, 2019 at 10:10 am

      Well he’s a functioning alcoholic.

        ‘was’

          Unless he died, I think “is” would be the appropriate wording

    The vette, makes me want to cry. Hope the driver is okay.

      A staple in his scalp and hurt ribs.

        Should have stapled his scalp to that tree

    • truthteller on April 2, 2019 at 4:15 pm

      Why? He could have killed someone in his drunken state.

      • The Warden on April 3, 2019 at 12:23 pm

        YES – punish him for what “might have” happened!

        He obviously has money – considering that even after a previous “difficulty” he still owns a late-model Corvette. So nothing done to him by our MD judges will hurt him.

        Unless……?

        • truthteller on April 3, 2019 at 8:58 pm

          Where did i say that?

  5. Anonymous on April 2, 2019 at 9:29 am

    If it is alcohol related then Verizon needs to charge him for repairs. His insurance company will not pay if he was drunk so he will be on the hook for a new car. Lastly they should take his license away, let him ride the bus if he wants to go somewhere. No sympathy for drunk drivers.

    • Anonymous on April 2, 2019 at 9:48 am

      Most insurance will cover regardless of sobriety. And if you think taking a license away will stop him from driving, please avoid reading the crime reports for St. Mary’s County. You will be disappointed. Drive without a license, pay a ticket, go free and drive home.

    • JBL on April 2, 2019 at 9:59 am

      Fear not, his foolish friend, male or female will loan him another vehicle. It’s the boo boo strategy.

    • Scott Sampson on April 2, 2019 at 1:10 pm

      Anyone who can afford a vette probably knows the right folks in Leonardtown to get this deal worked out.

    • Anonymous on April 2, 2019 at 2:19 pm

      Taking his license away won’t stop him.. You know how many people currently drive with no license? He won’t be satisfied until he kills himself, or worse, someone else..

    • Insurance? on April 2, 2019 at 3:20 pm

      Is that correct? I have always heard your insurance still covers it

    • Markie Mark on April 3, 2019 at 8:04 pm

      Think so huh? Why? Does his position stipulate that he’s not allowed to get a dui? I’m sure he’s not the first or the last so find something else to whine about.

      • LOL on April 3, 2019 at 9:10 pm

        How is he whining? The only one whining is you little markie.

      • Markie Mark2 on April 4, 2019 at 5:07 am

        If his job consist of having a security clearance and this DUI can get the security clearance revoked, then he will be looking for a new job.

        • Hmmmm on April 4, 2019 at 11:18 am

          And how many investigations have you seen the DODCAF revoke?

            Personally 4, I have heard about many others though. One girl lost her clearance and job on her first DWI. That is the way it should be, people with high level clearances are well compensated and should be held to a higher standard.

    so Jerry, the GS-15 Engineer, feels like he can go out on a monday night, get hammered and crash his sports car. How much do you wanna bet he gets a slap on the wrist, buys another sports car and continues to drink and drive. Kinda hope the staple in his head hit a spot that’ll give him some common sense.

      Don’t care about his car or his money. I do care about his selfish and reckless act of driving drunk. His money and car have nothing to do with that other then proving even selfish alcoholic @$$ holes can have money. Since he didn’t learn his lesson after his first DWI he deserves all this ridicule and judgement.
