Man arrested after hitting officer while fleeing from police

TEMPLE, TX (KXXV) - A 22-year-old Temple man is in the Bell County Jail and facing additional charges after police say he hit an officer with his vehicle while trying to get away from police.

Temple PD officers were called just after 12:30 a.m. Sunday about a disturbance in the 1000 block of S. 43rd St. While investigating, officers saw a vehicle and heard a man yelling the next block over. They then heard a sound they believed at the time was a possible gunshot.

Officers went to check it out and tried to stop the nearby SUV. Police report the driver hesitated as officers approached, before making a sharp right turn toward an officer.

The officer tried to get out of the way, but was hit by the vehicle in the lower leg. The officer was treated and later released from Baylor Scott & White Hospital for bruising to his leg.

Police found the SUV unoccupied in the 900 block of S. 43rd St., and the driver was taken into custody after being found nearby.

Louis Delagarza was charged with driving while license invalid and driving while intoxicated. He could face additional felony charges.
