Two early morning drivers were attacked by flying shopping carts on Friday as they passed through the 1900 block of El Camino Real, police said.
In two separate incidents, victims -- a 74-year-old Sunnyvale man and a 31-year-old Milpitas man -- told police that an assailant had charged their vehicles and heaved a shopping cart at them, around 4 a.m. on Oct. 15, according to police spokeswoman Liz Wylie.
Jossue Hernandez, a 31-year-old Mountain View man, was arrested shortly after 4 a.m. when police found him nearby, staggering in the middle of El Camino Real "with no regard for his own safety," Wylie said. A damaged shopping cart was found nearby.
"He was clearly under the influence," Wylie said of Hernandez, noting that the police report stated the man almost fell over a number of times as police approached him.
There was damage to both vehicles, Wylie said.
Hernandez was charged with being drunk in public and with throwing objects with intent to cause great bodily injury, which a felony, Wylie said.
