Man accused of smashing van into mobile homes

LAFAYETTE, Colo. (AP) – Colorado authorities say they have no idea what led a man to drive his pickup truck into three mobile homes and say 30-year-old Adrian Joseph Shaffer was acting like a human “pinball machine.”

The 30-year-old had two girls in his 1990 Chevy Astro Sunday when police say he rammed the car into units at the Banecks Mobile Home Park in Lafayette, in Denver’s northern suburbs.

Shaffer also hit a chain link fence, a concrete culvert and a parked pickup truck. Police say Schaffer appeared to be hitting things deliberately.

Schaffer fled police and his wrecked van on foot and attempted to elude police by jumping in a Dumpster. He was discovered and now faces several charges. The girls, aged 8 and 10, appear to be OK.
