Salem man charged with hitting 3 police cruisers

The police said a Salem man crashed into three police cruisers, causing minor injuries to two Salem officers.

The police said they found 30-year-old Luis Figueroa passed out in the front seat of a running car stopped on a road in a condominium complex Friday night.

When the officer woke him, the police said he sped off and hit several parked cars before driving head-on into a police cruiser, pushing it back about 15 feet. The police said he hit two other cruisers as he tried to get away.

Figueroa was arrested after a brief struggle. Authorities said they found a large bag of prescription Xanax pills stuffed into his pants.

He’s charged with driving while intoxicated, assault, resisting arrest and other charges.

It’s unknown whether he is being represented by an attorney.
