HOUSTON — A driver was detained after they allegedly struck a deputy and didn’t stop early Wednesday, the Harris County Precinct 2 Deputy Constable’s office says.
The deputy was stabilized and taken to the hospital.
The incident happened before 2 a.m. Wednesday in the eastbound lanes of Beltway 8 at Blackhawk.
The deputy was conducting a traffic stop when a passing pickup hit them and kept going. Another deputy responded and located the suspect on the feeder road not far away.
Precinct 2 said it’s believed the pickup driver was intoxicated and will likely face charges for the incident.
