Florida deputy struck by drunk driver, police say

Authorities say a Tampa Bay-area sheriff's deputy's patrol car was struck by a drunk driver.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office says Deputy Juan Lazu was on patrol early Sunday when a sport utility vehicle crossed the median and continued driving the wrong way.

Lazu was trapped in his vehicle after the crash but called for help on his radio. Sheriff's office spokesman Larry McKinnon says deputies pulled Lazu from his vehicle before it went up in flames.

McKinnon says Lazu suffered minor injuries.

The SUV's driver, Angel Pena, was held on $500 bond on a charge of driving under the influence with property damage. Jail records didn't show whether Pena had an attorney.

The sheriff's office says Pena smelled of alcohol at the scene but refused a breath test.
