Drug addict man causes automobile accident, assault officer, police say | Colorado Springs Information

A man who was reportedly under the influence of illicit drugs caused a single vehicle accident before hitting an officer who tried to restrain him early Thursday, police said.

Police said Irvin Molina, who was in the passenger seat of a moving car, wrung the steering wheel away from the driving woman and drove the car off the street into a retaining wall on the northwest corner of Palmer Park and Academy Boulevards.

When the officers responded to a 12:18 p.m. call about the crash, they arrested Molina, who hit one of them in the head when he resisted, police said. No one was seriously injured in the incident, officials said.

Molina was taken to El Paso County Jail, where he could be charged with assault and domestic violence, police said.
