Caught on Camera: Alleged drunk driver nearly hits Mass. pedestrians
CHELSEA, MA (WGME) -- It was a close call for some Massachusetts pedestrians as they narrowly miss getting hit by an alleged drunk driver.
Police say Jose Valle was at the wheel and over the limit during a wild and dangerous ride that was caught on camera in Chelsea.
Police say he struck a parked car, drove down the stairs of the city's civil war monument and nearly struck three pedestrians, who ran for their lives.
He then traveled across the city hall lawn and backed into one of the city's antique light poles.
He was arrested after his vehicle became disabled.
Police say Valle's blood alcohol was three times the legal limit.
