Man Charged with DUI after Warwick Crashes

WARWICK, R.I. (AP) _ A 23-year-old man has been charged with a series of crimes after authorities say he crashed into several cars while driving under the influence during a police chase in Warwick. Several people including an infant were hospitalized with minor injuries.
 
Warwick police say local resident Anthony Diaz was involved in a domestic dispute before officers spotted him speeding and driving erratically on Warwick Avenue Saturday night.
 
Police say Diaz struck a vehicle and caused it to roll over, and he later crashed into three other vehicles before being subdued by several officers during a foot chase.
 
Diaz was charged with reckless driving, DUI, domestic assault, violation of a no contact order and other crimes.
 
Diaz is being detained on bail. It's not clear if he has a lawyer.
