State Police arrest man for allegedly driving drunk, striking pedestrian near Gillette Stadium

State Police working a detail outside Gillette Stadium after Monday night’s New England Patriots game arrested a man for allegedly driving drunk, striking a pedestrian with his car, and fleeing the scene.

A motorist informed Trooper Michael Isom at 1 a.m. that there was an accident near his post on Route 1, State Police said in a statement. Isom drove north and saw a man lying on the road, State Police said.

“The man was in obvious pain and rolling on the ground,” State Police said. The victim, 30, of Boston, suffered a broken leg and cuts and bruises, State Police said.

Isom summoned an ambulance for the pedestrian and then broadcast a description of the suspect vehicle. Trooper Jeremiah Donovan, who was stationed two miles from the incident, stopped an Infiniti sedan after noticing the vehicle had a hole in its windshield and a broken sideview mirror.

Troopers arrested the driver, Daniel Lishness, 27, of Southwick, after they allegedly observed he had a heavy odor of alcohol on his breath, was unsteady on his feet, and slurred his speech.

Lishness was charged with operating under the influence of intoxicating liquor, second offense; leaving the scene of an accident with personal injury; negligent operation of a motor vehicle; and operating under the influence of liquor with serious injury and negligent operation.

Lishness is to be arraigned today in Wrentham District Court, State Police said.
