Police: Minnesota Hit-And-Run Started as Fight Over Drugs
MANKATO, Minn. (AP) _ Police say a fight over drugs ended with a man
deliberately driving into a group of people in Minnesota, injuring six.
None of the injuries in the Sunday attack appeared life-threatening.
Cmdr. Dan Schisel says charges are likely Tuesday against 21-year-old Juan
Carlos Lamas Jr. who's accused of driving a Cadillac CTS sedan into the group.
Schisel says the charges are likely to include driving while intoxicated,
fleeing police and criminal vehicular operation.
Schisel says a fight over drugs in an apartment preceded the attack. A tire and
rim fell off Lamas' car as he fled, and he was stopped by a deputy who saw
sparks coming from the car.
Two victims with serious injuries were flown to a Rochester hospital. Two
people others were taken to a Mankato hospital.
