MODESTO, CA - One man is in police custody after police say he tried to ram them at a DUI checkpoint.
According to a spokesman with Modesto police, 22-year-old Luis Reyes was stopped by DUI enforcement officers at a check point at Scenic Road and Bodem Road. He was then directed into a side parking lot because he didn't have a driver's license.
As Reyes started to turn in to the parking lot he then sped off on Scenic and when officers caught up to him, they said Reyes then tried to ram them, causing one of the officers to put his car in reverse to avoid getting hit.
Reyes eventually lost control of the car while driving on Lucerne Road and hit a parked car. He was then arrested and charged with DUI, assault with a deadly weapon and evading arrest.
