VIDEO: Maryland Officer Struck by DUI Suspect at Accident Scene

A 58-year-old Baltimore resident has been charged with a DUI and failure to reduce speed to avoid a collision after reportedly clipping a Montgomery County (Md.) officer who was directing traffic at an accident scene. The officer is under investigation for his reaction after the Tuesday incident.

Video captured by WJLA TV shows the officer slamming the top of the suspect's car, and when the driver gets out, the officer shoves the man to the ground.

The dispute began with an unrelated multi-car, multi-injury crash on the outer loop of 495 near the Connecticut Avenue exit. Traffic was crawling to one side as police, firefighters, and state troopers worked the scene.

At one point, cones were removed from one of the blocked lanes, and soon afterward, police say the suspect swerved into it, nearly running over the 20-year veteran Montgomery County Police officer who was grazed.

A tweet from Montgomery County Police, says the suspect had a BAC of .22.  Neither the officer nor the driver have been named by authorities.
