A local police officer was nearly hit by a drunk driver in Carlsbad recently, according to San Diego news outlet KGTV. The woman was eventually taken into custody on suspicion that she intended to hit the officer.
A Border Patrol agent found the driver sitting in her vehicle on the median near Carlsbad Boulevard and Ponto Drive. He contacted local police, who arrived to discover the driver had locked herself in her car. Instead of following the officers’ directions to get out of her car, she began to drive away, pointing her vehicle directly at one of the police officers. The officer had to jump out of the way to avoid being hit by the car.
