    Hummer Hits TPD Patrol Car

    TAMPA - Tampa Police say a drunk driver slammed his Hummer into a patrol car this morning with such force it totaled the cruiser and sent the officer to the hospital.

    Investigators said the Hummer came off the northbound I-275 ramp at Dale Mabry Highway and slammed into the patrol car about 3 a.m.

    The officer was waiting to turn onto northbound I-275.

    Paramedics transported Sgt. Christopher Ugles to St. Joseph’s Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. He was released and is expected to make a full recovery.

    Police charged Stacy Smith, 39, with DUI with property damage or personal injury, a misdemeanor, according to jail records. His blood alcohol content was found to be .166 and .162. Anyone with a BAC of .08 or above is considered intoxicated under Florida law.

    Smith, a self-employed medical implants salesman from Orange Park, is being held at the Orient Road Jail on $500 bond, according to jail records.

    Wouldn't it be fun to start a rumor that the Hummer burst into flames upon impcat? To counter the Prius hits Tacoma gas station story that was so exagerated?

    And why must we resort to this type of behavior?
