A Massachusetts man accused of crashing a police car as he tried to commandeer it, resulting in serious injuries for the officer, has been indicted.
The Attleboro Sun Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/2xhSuGw ) that 20-year-old Cristofer Veloz faces charges including assault and battery of a police officer, DUI and robbery.
Veloz says he was under the influence of hallucinogenic mushrooms during the encounter in Attleboro on July 1. His lawyer called it ``out of character'' for him.
Police say an officer suffered injuries including a broken ankle when his leg was crushed between the cruiser and a pole. The officer has not yet returned to work.
Arraignment is scheduled for Sept. 14.
