Hit-and-run driver arrested after striking two IMPD officers

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH)- Two IMPD officers are recovering after being victims of a hit-and-run on the city’s east side.

Investigators say both officers were responding to a disturbance at 12:39 a.m. Saturday.

One officer was westbound on E. Washington Street and was getting ready to turn right onto N. Gladstone when another motorist driving a 2000 black Cadillac DHS failed to stop and hit the squad car.

The crash pushed the squad car into another officer’s car which was parked along the street.

Officers later found the suspect driver who crashed into the squad car and arrested 28-year-old Jeremy Marble of Indianapolis.

Investigators said Marble knowingly and intentionally operated his vehicle while intoxicated and fled the scene, according to an IMPD press release.

Marble faces preliminary charges of failure to stop at an accident causing serious injury, operating a vehicle while intoxicated causing serious bodily injury, and leaving the scene of a crash while intoxicated causing serious bodily injury.

Both officers were taken to the hospital to be checked out and are in stable condition.
