ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) - Prosecutors say an Attleboro man drunkenly rammed his pickup truck into the rear of his pregnant daughter’s car during an argument.

Joseph Moore III was held on $5,000 bail after pleading not guilty Thursday to charges including drunken driving and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

The Sun Chronicle (http://bit.ly/1lugpa0 ) reports that the 25-year-old woman, who’s eight months pregnant, declined medical treatment at the scene Wednesday afternoon.

Prosecutors say the woman drove away after an argument and Moore, with a blood alcohol content of .20, chased her and rear-ended her at an intersection. He then fled to a relative’s home.

Prosecutors say the impact knocked the cellphone from her hand.

Moore’s lawyer said vehicle damage was minor and noted that his client’s daughter did not obtain an emergency restraining order.
