Skip to comments.Drugs, kinky sex linked to cop: Reports: Accused trooper, wife partied

Accused wife-beating state cop Tim White and his wife led a hard-partying life of coke snorting and three-way sex that sent the respected trooper into a downward spiral of depression and violence, according to court records and affidavits obtained by the Herald.
In the aftermath of a harrowing ordeal at their Stoughton home last week during which White allegedly stuck a gun in his wife's mouth, Maura White told police a sordid tale of a nine-year marriage gone awry. She said her husband, a 16-year trooper and former department spokesman, had grown depressed over the past three years and was on anti-depressants.
According to an affidavit by Stoughton police Sgt. Robert J. Welch, White ``wanted to have sexual relationships with his wife and a third person.'' The couple went out on Saturday nights to clubs and bars where White would ``disappear'' and watch from afar as men tried to pick her up, Welch reported.
The fantasizing turned to reality last July when the couple picked up an employee of a Hub nightspot and brought him back to their home where the three had sex, Maura White, 41, told police.
In addition to the alleged sexual escapades, the couple partied at home and were using drugs, authorities allege.
Following his arrest, Tim White told doctors that his wife had been using cocaine for more than a year and that he had been snorting the drug for several months. White, who last year was assigned to the department's narcotics inspections unit, also tested positive for marijuana, records show.
The revelations come in the wake of a terrifying brawl in the couple's home last Monday, during which White, 39, allegedly stuck his gun in his mouth three times and his wife's mouth twice. He also slapped her to the ground, splitting her lip, kicked her in the stomach and pointed the gun at her buttocks.
White's attorney, Tim Burke, said the trooper should be in a private mental health facility, not a prison hospital.
``These are obviously matters of a personal nature which have a limited relationship to the matter at hand,'' Burke said of the sexual allegations.
Stoughton police Chief Manuel Cachopa said officers had been called to the couple's Southworth Court home three times before last week's incident.
On June 23, 2002, police responded there at 4 a.m. to ``remove an unwanted party,'' Cachopa said.
Police were again called to the house on Dec. 6, 2002, when White allegedly grabbed his wife and licked her face during an argument over taking the kids to school and shoveling snow. Police filed a complaint charging White but the case was continued on the condition the couple attend counseling.
A conference in the case was scheduled for April 8, but because of last week's incident, Stoughton District Court Clerk Donald Stapleton yesterday issued a complaint charging Tim White with assault and battery for the December incident.
Police also responded to a 911 hangup at the house on Super Bowl Sunday - the day before White allegedly terrorized his wife at gunpoint in the home.
Maura White has told police that the couple had a fight last July, during which her rib was broken. Court papers say police responded to the house but Cachopa said the department has no record of the incident.
The most recent brawl came after Maura White left with the children for the weekend. Court papers show she dropped off the girls, ages 4 and 6, at a friend's house on Sunday and stayed at the Dedham Holiday Inn.
The trooper also allegedly crawled into bed with the weapon with one of the girls. He was arrested after a tense, hour-long standoff.
Two abuse and neglect reports have been filed by the Department of Social Services. DSS spokesman Michael McCormack said the girls are staying with their mother and the case is under investigation.
White is being held without bail on attempted murder and assault charges at Bridgewater State Hospital. He has been suspended without pay.
Maggie Mulvihill and Dave Weber contributed to this report.
From everything I have ever heard, the answer is definitely "Yes".
Secondly, did you catch this:
She said her husband, a 16-year trooper and former department spokesman, had grown depressed over the past three years and was on anti-depressants.
The guy was on anti-depressants. Why should anyone who needs to take mind-altering drugs be allowed to be a cop?
White, who last year was assigned to the department's narcotics inspections unit, also tested positive for marijuana, records show.
Wonder if he ever "did drugs" before he had access to the evidence room and free drugs?
NO KIDDING. Nice---I'm going to get busted for grass by a cop hopped up on Zoloft? A cop so unbalanced he can't get through 24 hours without a fix?
Ummmmm... this comment reminds me of the argument of the gun killing people, not the person behind it. Sure, drugs are a road to nowhere, but blaming the drugs for this type human behavior is incorrect. This behavior is rooted. Drugs only enhance it.
Just keeping things in perspective...
The scary thing is that given how stressful the job of being a cop is(and I surely wouldn't deny its stressful), there is no telling how many cops may be on anti-depressants. That combined with adrenaline could explain some of the crazy behavior.
It does seem to corrupt most everyone who has to put up with that crap, day in and day out. I'm someone who doesn't know a lot of cops. Is working narcotics a coveted position in police work?
I didn't see any mention of a whole chicken.
Sounds like the two guys went about making Maura White water-tight. Ba-dump-bump.
Take my wife ............. please!
Perhaps the cocaine was a wrongheaded attempt to self-medicate a pre-existing depression.
Actually, re-read the story. He had been doing cocain for a couple of months, but had been suffering from depresion for years. He had been with the narcotics unit for a year. Add one and one and you come to the conclusion he was doing cocain to combat the depression.
