LAFAYETTE, Colo. (AP) - A Lafayette police officer has been injured after being struck by a suspected drunk driver on his way out of the Flatirons Community Church parking lot.

Police were responding to a complaint from church officials on Saturday about a man who appeared to be intoxicated inside the church. When police reached him in the parking lot, Cmdr. Gene McCausey says the driver hit an officer and drove away.

The officer was treated at a hospital and released. The officer and suspect were not identified.

The Boulder Daily Camera reports (https://tinyurl.com/maob254 ) the suspect was arrested in a park in Louisville after a citizen called to report she’d seen the man’s car sought by police.

The man was arrested on suspicion of first-degree assault, resisting arrest and obstructing a peace officer.
