BOSTON (AP) - Police say a suspected drunk driver nearly struck two police officers patrolling outside Fenway Park in Boston.

Prosecutors say police spotted the 58-year-old man driving erratically outside the baseball stadium shortly after a Red Sox game ended Wednesday night.

Officers tried to stop the vehicle, and police say the man came close to hitting two officers on two separate occasions. Investigators say the driver went on to a sidewalk at one point, causing pedestrians to leap out of the way.

The man was eventually stopped in Brookline and arrested. Police say they found malt liquor in the man’s car, and he had a suspended license.

The suspect is facing multiple charges, including assault with a dangerous weapon and operating under the influence.
