A Wilmington man pleaded not guilty in South Boston District Court on Friday to charges that he sideswiped a parked police cruiser while driving drunk and without a license, officials said.
MBTA Transit police arrested George Mann, 55, on Thursday night after he hit the cruiser outside of South Boston’s Broadway station while driving a Ford pickup truck around 7:15 p.m., police said in a statement.
The transit officer in the cruiser chased Mann and pulled him over at the corner of A Street and West Broadway.
Mann is charged with operating under the influence of liquor, leaving the scene, and operating without a license.
He will return to court on Aug. 21, said Renee Algarin, a spokeswoman for Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel Conley.
