Oklahoma City Police arrested a man accused of slamming into a patrol car early Monday morning, and then hitting a telephone pole.

The officer was on call, and parked near N.W. 30th and Venice around 2:30 a.m. when a white Jeep collided with her cruiser. The driver didn't stop until one of his tires went flat and he hit a telephone pole. That's when police took him into custody.

The driver was identified as 38-year-old Michael Razo. Police say it appears Razo was intoxicated.

Razo was arrested on complaints of DUI, attempting to elude, and leaving the scene of a non-injury accident.

No one was hurt in the collision. The officer's patrol car received minor damage.
