Bicyclist ignores siren, hits squad car

The Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office said a bicyclist inching down the center of the road ignored lights and siren and ran into a police car. The Minden Press-Herald reported that 47-year-old Robert Earl Batton of Minden was booked with second-offense DWI and possessing marijuana. Calls to Batton’s home were not answered Friday.

A sheriff’s office press release said a deputy tried to pull Batton over late Saturday after a vehicle almost hit him. The deputy turned on lights and siren, then pulled ahead and got out.

Batton passed the officer and broadsided the police car.

The news release said a breath test registered blood alcohol of .270 percent – more than triple the legal limit.
