Drunken woman sideswipes officer’s squad car

A police officer conducting a traffic stop on the 1100 block of Williamson Street was sideswiped in his vehicle by another driver Saturday at 10 p.m, according to a Madison Police Department incident report.

MPD Officer Kevin Michigan was seated in his squad car when 23-year-old Madison resident Kirsti L. Walker sideswiped the driver side and damaged the rear axle, disabling the vehicle.

The suspect continued driving half a city block until her own car broke down from damages sustained in the crash.

Michigan then contacted Walker and took her into custody, according to the report. Walker had a BAC of .20, more than twice the legal limit of .08. The officer charged her with operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, failure to move over for an emergency vehicle and hit and run.

Neither driver was injured during the Saturday night incident.
