EVERETT (CBS) – The man who led police on a wild ride through Everett Thursday afternoon admits he was drinking.
Jose Pineda was charged with one count of operating under the influence Friday in Malden District Court.
A day earlier, he crashed into a couple of cars, before hitting a utility pole and then his own house.
Police said Pineda nearly struck a gas line when he hit his home.
“I drank a couple of beers, sorry. I don’t say I don’t drink,” Pineda told reporters outside court.
