HOBBS, N.M. (KRQE) – A New Mexico man is accused of ramming a police car while leading officers on a chase.
Police say they got reports Thursday of Leonardo Marquez Jr. trying to run over a woman with his sedan.
When police caught up with Marquez, he sped away.
Police say he eventually slammed into a patrol car just after an officer put down a spike strip.
Paramedics took the officer to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police also believe Marquez was drunk. He’s now charged with his sixth DWI.
Marquez is also facing aggravated battery on a police officer and a charge for escaping police.
