Police say two men were arrested for crashing the same car while taking turns driving it while drunk.

The Salem News reports 46-year-old Juan Rodriguez, of Haverhill, and 43-year-old Erik Liebowitz, of Apoka, Florida, are each charged with drunken driving and other crimes for Monday morning's crashes.

Police say Liebowitz drove onto the sidewalk, hit a sign and then returned the road, where he pulled over and Rodriguez, his passenger, got into the driver's seat. Rodriguez then struck a parked car while driving.

Police say Rodriguez also backed into the responding officer's cruiser.

Liebowitz's attorney says he's been arrested for drunken driving in Florida but never convicted.
