CLARKSVILLE, Tenn.- Medics
rushed a Clarksville police officer to the hospital after he was hit by an
alleged drunk driver.
Officer Tom Johnson was
stopped at a red light on Fort Campbell Boulevard when the driver of an SUV, 47-year-old
Stanley Mickens, slammed into the back of his patrol car Sunday morning.
Fortunately the officer
wasn't seriously hurt. Investigators say a breath test revealed Mickens was
intoxicated, and his test revealed he was almost three times the legal limit.
Mickens is now facing DUI charges.
