Maryland Driver Charged with DUI after Hitting Arlington County Police SUV

By Alpert Schreyer on December 27, 2016

PoliceEarly Saturday morning, December 10th, an unoccupied police SUV was struck by a driver while two officers conducted a traffic stop.

The driver had been driving on a suspended license, which according to police, was due to multiple prior DUI charges.

The accident occurred around 12:38am on I-395 North. Both officers were taken to Virginia Hospital Center for treatment after being hit by debris from the crash, and were then released. The driver was extricated from his vehicle by medics and treated for non-life threatening injuries at George Washington University Hospital.

According to a police statement, the driver was “arrested and charged with driving under the influence (3+ offense or 2+ felony offense), driving with a suspended license, and driving with DUI suspended license (3+ offense in 10 years),”

Arlington County Police released a statement asking drivers to exercise additional caution this holiday season, saying:

“This holiday season, as with any other time of year, if you’re planning to drink also plan a sober ride home. Washington Regional Alcohol Program is offering free cab rides beginning this Friday, December 16 – January 1, 2017. Call 1-800-200-TAXI for a sober ride home.

Help us ensure our officers make it home to their families. If you see emergency lights, please slow down and move over. Our officers need space to safely work”

As you are traveling this holiday season, prepare for your trip, drink responsibly, and be aware of other drivers.  By all means, drive defensively and be aware of existing construction and work zones.
