Two CSPD Officers Escape InjuryFeatured Stories, News Monday, September 23rd, 2013
Two College Station police officers escaped injury this weekend dealing with accused drunk drivers.
Friday night, a patrolman says he was approaching the stoplight at Deacon and Longmire. The officer says he was headed north and had the green light when he saw an approaching eastbound car not slowing down for the red light. The officer said he had to accelerate to avoid being t-boned on the driver’s side. The patrolman was able to track down and stop the other car at Rock Prairie and Highway 6. The driver, 39 year old Sheila Lukes of College Station was taken to jail five days shy of her first DWI arrest three years ago. This time, she’s accused of driving with an alcohol level two and a half times the legal limit.
And Friday night at closing time in Northgate, an officer jumped in the bed of a pickup with the tires spinning to avoid being hit by an 18 year old accused of nearly hitting three groups of pedestrians and striking one vehicle. The arrest report states Grant Robinson of College Station finally stopped after the officer drew his gun at the driver from the truck bed. Robinson is out of jail after posting bond following his arrest for drunk driving and evading arrest. Three passengers with Robinson told officers they believe he was driving aggressively because he was trying to avoid being arrested. The incident, which began at University and Boyett, ended on Church near Wellborn.
