Police: Accused Drunk Driver Tried To Cast Spell On State Trooper

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say a Southborough man arrested for allegedly driving under the influence apparently didn't like being charged, so he put a spell on the state trooper making the arrest.

Prosecutors said in court that 36-year-old Stewart Anderson was found in his car in the breakdown lane of Interstate 495 in Hopkinton just after 3 a.m. Tuesday with an open bottle of liquor and a prescription muscle relaxant.

Anderson was arrested after failing several field sobriety tests.

The MetroWest Daily News ( ) reports that Anderson then said to the trooper: "Bam, I just shot acid on you."

Anderson denied knowing how to cast a spell in court. He had his bail revoked on a prior drunken driving charge. His attorney said he is on disability and should be released with conditions.
