SHARE Police: Drunken driver hits squad car during DWI arrest

GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas — Police in a Dallas suburb say a drunken driver crashed into an empty squad car while officers were busy dealing with another drunken driver they had pulled over.

Grand Prairie police say a third driver then crashed into another empty squad car, but this driver wasn’t drunk or high.

The Dallas Morning News reports that officers pulled over the first driver at around 3 a.m. Sunday and ended up arresting that person for driving while intoxicated.

Department spokesman Lyle Gensler says the driver of the first vehicle to hit a squad car was also arrested on a DWI charge, but the third driver was only ticketed.

The only person hurt was the second driver, who suffered minor injuries.
