Drunk Scottsdale Man Crashes Car Into Police Cruiser
|Barry Lee Smith: NWA Man of the Year.|
A 13-year veteran of the Scottsdale Police Department was on routine patrol just before 7 p.m. last night when he noticed a vehicle driving with its lights off.
Add to that, the vehicle made an illegal turn. But before the officer had a chance to pull the vehicle over, it crashed into his police cruiser.
The officer was OK, and he was taken to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The dopey driver, Smith, was believed to be drunk, and he was taken to an area jail on suspicion of DUI.
