(NEW YORK) A New York City police officer has been indicted on drunken-driving, vehicular assault and other charges in connection with a series of smashups in which he allegedly collided with seven other cars and injured seven people.

Prosecutors said Earl Jones, 43, was involved in four crashes within 45 minutes on Dec. 19, 2004. They said police seized him after the fourth crash, in which he destroyed his 1997 BMW.
