SEAFORD, Del. (AP) — Delaware State Police have arrested a man they say was driving under the influence of alcohol and side-swiped an ambulance.
Police said in a statement Sunday that the incident began around 9:30 a.m. Saturday with reports of a person driving erratically in Seaford. Soon after, an ambulance reported being side-swiped by the same vehicle, which fled.
A police officer and a trooper caught up to the car and made a stop. The statement says the trooper detected an odor of alcohol and conducted a DUI investigation.
Police say 26-year-old Anselmo Dionicio-Lopez of Georgetown has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, leaving the scene and other counts.
He was arraigned and was being held on $2,600 cash bail. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had an attorney.
