GLADEWATER, TX (KLTV) - A Gladewater police officer is out of surgery, just days after he was hit by a car.
Last week, Officer Mike Johnson was doing a traffic stop when a Chevy pickup side swiped the car he was ticketing. Johnson suffered broken bones in his foot and upper body, and Tuesday, had to have surgery for a sudden case of internal bleeding. He is recuperating.
The driver, 40-year-old Eugene Allen Jones, was arrested for passing an emergency vehicle causing bodily injury.
