Man rams car into police vehicle during DWI arrest

Crime

State Police had a tough time trying to arrest an alleged drunk driver.

On Thursday night, police spotted a red SUV driving without one of its tires near San Mateo and Menaul.

According to a criminal complaint, officers pulled over the driver, 38-year-old Calvin Joe, who they say appeared to be drunk.

Joe refused to get out of the car, put it in reverse and struck a State Police vehicle.

He began driving off before striking another vehicle, leading him back to police.

Officers shot Joe with a bean bag before arresting him.

Joe appeared in court for the first time this weekend, where the State filed a preventative detention motion. 

Joe has at least three prior drunk driving arrests.
