IPSWICH - A patrolman was forced off the road after he encountered two suspected drunken drivers on Clark Road early yesterday morning, police said.
Police said Patrolman Justin Daly was on routine patrol of the Clark Road area at 1:47 a.m. when he came upon the two drivers, Kathryn Cavic, 18, of North Andover and Stephen Miles, 20, of 58 N. Main St., Ipswich. Miles was trying to pass Cavic on Clark Road, a small road in the oceanfront Great Neck neighborhood, according to police.
Daly had to swerve his cruiser off the road to get out of the way of the oncoming cars, police said.
Both Cavic and Miles were arrested and charged with drunken driving. Miles was also charged with driving recklessly and failure to drive in marked lanes. Both were scheduled for arraignment on the charges yesterday in Ipswich District Court.
