A suspected drunk driver hit a police officer who had just pulled over another driver for DUI.Police said the officer had just stepped out of his car at 'B' Street near Mariposa, at about 1:15 in the morning. That's when the other driver came up and banged into the officer.

Police said she stopped for a second, and then tried to drive away from the scene. But the officer had already called for backup on the DUI stop he was making and the backup officers caught up to the suspect and pulled her over.
