Rodwell is charged with forcing other vehicles to swerve into the breakdown lane to avoid being hit and passing in a no-passing zone. He faces three and half to seven years in prison on each charge.
In the third case, Victor Deleon, 39, of Lawrence was indicted on robbery and theft charges for an incident at Lowe’s in Salem on Feb. 5.
Deleon, who was allegedly stealing saw blades, waved a hypodermic needle when approached by a store security worker, police said.
He then shouted repeatedly, “I have AIDS,” and fled the store with another man, police said. He was later arrested by police in Lawrence.
Deleon, who was still in jail yesterday, faces seven and a half to 15 years in state prison if convicted of robbery and three and a half to seven years in prison if convicted of theft.
