HOLLIS — A Somerville, Massachusetts man was arrested on charges of aggravated driving under the influence early this morning after nearly colliding with a patrol car, according to the Hollis Police Department.

Scott McDonnell, 57, was observed by a Hollis officer swerving dangerously across Broad St. around 12:10 a.m., prompting a traffic stop.

The officer reported a strong smell of alcohol emanating from McDonnell’s vehicle upon contact.

McDonnell attempted standardized field sobriety tests but was unable to complete them due to his impairment level.

After being transported to Hollis Police Department for processing, McDonnell was released on personal recognizance bail.

His arraignment is scheduled at the 9th Circuit Court, Nashua District.

McDonnell faces an aggravated DUI charge for having a blood alcohol concentration (BrAC) of .21, which is over twice the legal limit of .08.

Additionally, he faces two alternative counts of DUI.
