A man Massachusetts State Police say rear-ended a cruiser at a red light in Back Bay was arrested early Friday morning.
Leonidas Joachim, 24, of Dorchester, was arrested at 2 a.m. and charged with operating under the influence of liquor and unsafe lane change.
In the report, police say Troopers Dennis Hogan and Patrick Mahady were stopped at a red light at the corner of Tremont and Boylston streets when their cruiser was struck from behind by another car. Police said there was minor damage on the left side of the cruiser.
Joachim, the operator, told a sergeant who was called to the scene that he had been at the Pour House "and made statements relative to having consumed a few drinks but denied being intoxicated," according to the report.
Police say he performed several field sobriety tests and was "deemed to be under the influence of intoxicating liquor."
He was arrested and brought to the Boston State Police Barracks, and later received bail and was released on personal recognizance, police said. He was scheduled to be arraigned in Boston Municipal Court this morning.
