ATTLEBORO, Mass. — Prosecutors say an Attleboro man drunkenly rammed his pickup truck into the rear of his pregnant daughter’s car during an argument.

Joseph Moore III was held on $5,000 bail after pleading not guilty Thursday to charges including drunken driving and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

The Sun Chronicle reports that the 25-year-old woman, who’s eight months pregnant, declined medical treatment at the scene Wednesday afternoon.

Prosecutors say the woman drove away after an argument and Moore, with a blood alcohol content of .20, chased her and rear-ended her at an intersection. He then fled to a relative’s home.

Prosecutors say the impact knocked the cellphone from her hand.

Moore’s lawyer said vehicle damage was minor and noted that his client’s daughter did not obtain an emergency restraining order.


BROCKTON, Mass. — A Brockton man was arrested for drunk driving after police said he was asleep behind the wheel in the center lane at the intersection of Main Street and Legion Parkway early Monday morning.

The intersection is the same place where a 42-year-old father of three was killed in a car accident Saturday morning, the Enterprise reported.

Joao V. DeAndrade, 53, of 60 Martland Ave., Brockton was charged with drunk driving and failure to stop ior yield.

Police found DenAndrade asleep behind the wheel in a black Mercedes in the center lane on Main Street facing north at 1:57 a.m. Monday.

“His head was resting on his chest,” said Brockton Police Lt. Robert Sergio. “The operator’s foot was on the brake and the vehicle was in drive.”

When officers woke DeAndrade, Sergio said, he seemed confused. Officers asked him to put the car in park and he took his foot off the brake, rolled a couple feet forward before putting it in park.

Police said he failed field sobriety tests and was placed under arrest.

DeAndrade is expected to be arraigned in Brockton District Court Monday.
