ABC7 News has learned that prior to Monday night’s crash, the suspect had two other warrants out for his arrest. We were inside the courtroom Tuesday afternoon as the suspect faced a judge regarding those charges.
San Jose police say Villalobos was behind the wheel of a black Ford Expedition around 10:30 p.m. and was responsible for a drunk driving rampage that went for a mile and a half.
Police tell ABC7 News the destruction began in the parking lot of a Denny’s restaurant near Tuers Road and Capitol Expressway. They say the suspect hit one vehicle on his way out and another as he approached the Expressway.
According to police, Villalobos then drove south on Senter Road and hit two parked cars before making a U-turn on El Cajon Drive.
“After striking the Volkswagen, our suspect still continued a little bit northbound and struck another vehicle that was southbound on Senter Road, preparing to make a left turn,” said Monahan.
Police say a total of six vehicles were struck by the suspect.
