It’s a bad day whenever you’re involved in an accident, but it’s an even worse one when you hit a police officer. The charges aren’t more serious in most cases, but it does add a level of embarrassment. One such incident happened recently in West Philadelphia. An alleged DUI driver struck the officer’s police cruiser from behind early in the morning. The accident happened at 52nd and Market St. The officer was taken to the hospital and is in stable condition.
The driver of the vehicle was arrested for DUI and other charges related to the accident.
No matter what the reason for the stop, the charges of DUI and related crimes are always serious. People arrested for DUI can face an array of penalties including:
