A suspected drunken driver swerved off the road toward unlikely targets — two state police cars with officers standing next to them.
The two officers were at 205 Chico Drive when Patrick Trujillo, 24, 820 N. Grand Ave., was speeding on the wrong side of the street shortly after 7 p.m. Monday, nearly wrecking when he rounded a curve, according to a state police report. The car drifted onto the grass shoulder, approaching the squad cars. One of the officers told Trujillo to stop, but he drove away.
