An officer is recovering after his vehicle was struck on a street in Pacific Beach by a young woman who was later arrested for suspicion of drunken driving, early morning Sunday.

The unidentified officer was in his patrol car in the 1200 block of Garnet Avenue at about 2:13 a.m., said SDPD officials.

The officer was rear-ended shortly after by a driver who was said to be going 20 miles per hour.

Police said the driver, identified as 21-year-old Illene Lockridge, ended up failing a field sobriety test and was arrested.

The officer suffered injuries to his neck and back. He was taken to an area hospital and later released.
