Santa Barbara Police officers were called to the intersection of Arrellaga and Castillo Streets just after nine Monday night.  They found evidence that shots had been fire, but no one was there.

As they were investigating, a car slammed into two parked police patrol vehicles.  Fortunately, no one was hurt.  Officer say they arrested Jacob Milem on a DUI charge.
