A Los Angeles man has been arrested for driving under the influence after he slammed his pickup truck into a LAPD squad car at an intersection.

According to the Daily Breeze, a man driving a Ford F150 drove through a red light at an intersection around 2am when he crashed into a police car that was heading southbound on Main Street.  The impact of the accident sent the police officers vehicle barreling into a telephone pole.   The pickup driver and his male passenger fled the scene but were later found and taken into custody. The driver of the vehicle was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and hit-and run.
