Shakopee police have posted a scary video of a car officers had pulled over being struck on the driver's side by a passing vehicle, just as officers were approaching.
"This," the post reads, "This is why we don't take chances. We train our officers to approach vehicles from the passenger side when pulling vehicles over on busy roads. We want to go home to our families. Move over when you see flashing lights. IT'S THE LAW (Ted Foss Law)."
The post said the driver whose vehicle struck the car was tracked down soon after and arrested by the state patrol for suspicion of DUI and other potential charges.
The state patrol said the case is an open investigation, meaning details have not been released. But a spokesperson did say the incident took place in the early morning hours of May 5.
