CASA GRANDE, AZ - A Casa Grande woman was arrested Sunday after hitting a DUI Task Force Vehicle while driving under the influence of alcohol, according to authorities.
Deputies, including a K9, with the Pinal County Sheriff's Office, were working another traffic stop near Peart Road and Cottonwood Lane, on Sunday when an oncoming vehicle crashed into one of their DUI Task Force vehicles, said PCSO spokesman Tim Gaffney.
The deputy was taken to Casa Grande Regional Medical Center with minor injuries. His K9 was transported to the Veterinary Emergency Clinic in San Tan Valley as a precaution.
