    Authorities say a Southborough, Massachusetts man arrested for allegedly driving under the influence apparently didn't like being charged, so put a spell on the state trooper making the arrest. 

    Prosecutors said in court that 36-year-old Stewart Anderson was found in his car in the breakdown lane of Interstate 495 in Hopkinton just after 3 a.m. Tuesday with an open bottle of liquor and a prescription muscle relaxant. 

    Anderson was arrested after failing several field sobriety tests. 

    The MetroWest Daily News reports that Anderson then said to the trooper: "Bam, I just shot acid on you.'' 

    Anderson denied knowing how to cast a spell in court. He had his bail revoked on a prior drunken driving charge. His attorney said he is on disability and should be released with conditions.
