You ever hear the expression go big or go home? Well, hitting 47 cars while you’re out on the town definitely qualifies as going big, but Christopher Paolissi clearly should have gone home. Maybe should never have left there, actually.
Paolissi was arrested Tuesday afternoon near the intersection of Elmwood and Lexington avenues, after Lt. John Ryan said Paolissi hit at least 47 cars. Only one vehicle had someone in it.
Jordan Pinas told NBC 10 he was sitting in a car on Sumter Street when Paolissi allegedly smashed the side of it and continued driving.
According to police, Paolissi was zigzagging through south Providence, sideswiping dozens of vehicles. Police said when they saw Paolissi driving a red pickup truck, he was going about 15 to 20 mph.
He was taken to hospital with minor injuries and also charged with driving under the influence, reckless driving and failing to stop during an accident.
