Man indicted for DUI for crashing into two police officers

A man was indicted on drunken driving charges for striking the vehicle of two plain-clothed police officers, prosecutors said Friday.

Agusto Martinez, age unknown, faces two counts of DUI causing substantial bodily harm and one count of leaving the scene of an accident.

Prosecutor Brian Rutledge said Martinez’ blood-alcohol level was over 0.20, more than twice the legal limit at the time of the crash on Nov. 20, 2010. The crash happened on U.S. Highway 95, near Eastern Avenue.

Las Vegas police officers Richard Tennant and Donald Shane were injured in the crash.

Judge Gloria Sturman set bail at $150,000 for Martinez, who was not in custody.
