INDIANAPOLIS - Two Indianapolis police officers were injured in a hit-and-run overnight when a suspected drunk driver crashed into their patrol cars.
IMPD Officers Ronald Sayles and William Reddy were parking their patrol cars near the intersection of East Washington Street and North Gladstone Avenue shortly after midnight Saturday when both of their cars were struck by a black Cadillac DHS.
The driver of the Cadillac, later identified as Jeremy Marble, 28, continued traveling westbound on Washington Street, leaving a trail of debris and motor fluids in his wake.
Sayles and Reddy were transported in serious but stable condition to Methodist Hospital while another officer followed the trail of debris to a nearby house on North Denny Street.
Neighbors in the area connected the car to a house on the street, where a female resident told the officer that her boyfriend, Marble, had just returned and was "being hysterical and informed her that he was going to jail because he just struck a cop car," according to the police report.
Marble told police he had a "few shots of rum" in the 2-3 hour period prior to the crash. A preliminary breath test measured his BAC at .19, more than twice the legal limit.
Marble was arrested on preliminary charges of failure to stop at an accident causing bodily injury, operating a vehicle with intoxicated causing serious bodily injury, and leaving the scene of a crash while intoxicated causing serious bodily injury.
