EL SEGUNDO – On Saturday evening an El Segundo police officer and his K9 partner were heading to work, driving on the 1-10 freeway.
Suddenly his patrol car was struck from behind by another motorist in a Dodge Durango. The officer changed lanes and as he did the vehicle struck him again.
In fact, he was rammed several more times, and then the driver of the offending Dodge sped away, in reverse, and exited on Indian Hill Boulevard.
CHP and Pomona PD located the suspect not long after. David Glen Dennison admitted to hitting the officer’s car intentionally. The officer suffered minor injuries and was treated at the hospital and released.
Dennison was charged with assault with a deadly weapon, assault on a police officer, assault on a police dog, criminal threats and DUI.
