CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - Prosecutors say a longtime Camden County Improvement Authority official has been indicted on charges of assault by automobile for hitting a car with his county-owned vehicle while drunk.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports (http://bit.ly/1QKQ8mU ) the indictment also charges 56-year-old Michael Hagarty with driving while intoxicated, leaving the scene of an accident, careless driving and refusing to take a breath test.

Prosecutors say the Pine Hill resident struck another vehicle with his CCIA-registered car on East Gibbsboro Road in Lindenwold around 8:30 p.m. on April 29.

Police say at least one person in the other car was injured in the crash.

A County spokesman says Hagarty, director of project management for the CCIA, has been suspended without pay since he was charged by Lindenwold police.

Hagarty did not return requests for comment.
