A man accused of crashing into a Massachusetts State Police trooper on his motorcycle while drunk over the weekend is due in court Monday.
Police say Danilo Diroche was riding his motorcycle in Revere on Saturday night when he allegedly slammed into the trooper, who was getting out of his cruiser on Revere Beach Boulevard.
Authorities say the motorcyclist hit the trooper, then struck a car and tried to run away on foot before officers arrested him.
Procopio says Danilo Diroche has been charged with operating under the influence of liquor and leaving the scene of a crash that caused personal injury. The 26-year-old Lynn man was also taken to a hospital with unknown injuries. It's unclear if he has an attorney.
The trooper suffered injuries to his head and upper body.
