A drunk driver struck a police car on Long Island early Saturday, injuring the officer, Suffolk County police say.
Knapp was driving a Jeep on Montauk Highway in Brookhaven when he struck a police vehicle at about 3:30 a.m., police said. The officer was on a traffic post for a road closure due to down wires.
The officer was taken to Stony Brook Hospital, police said. His injuries didn't appear to be life-threatening.
Dennis Knapp, 38, of Shirley, was charged with driving while intoxicated, police said. He was brought to Long Island Medical Center for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
It wasn't clear whether Knapp had an attorney. He was scheduled to be arraigned Sunday.
