2:16 a.m. – Homewood Avenue and Youngstown Road, Gregory Currie, 38, arrested and charged with DUI, driving under suspension and receiving stolen property. While officers were on the scene of a shooting, they said Currie crashed into multiple police cruisers. Police tried to pull him over but said he pulled into a parking lot and started driving around in circles. When he eventually stopped, police said he refused to get out of the car and fought against being arrested. Officers said they saw an open beer bottle in the car and a pint of vodka, which was mostly empty. Currie told police that he didn’t see the police cars in the road at first, and because his brakes are bad, he couldn’t stop right away, according to a report. Police said he failed field sobriety tests.
