San Antonio Police Officer Injured by Drunk Driver

Posted on January 28th, 2011 No Comments

A San Antonio Police Officer was seriously injured by an alleged drunk driver Sunday.

According to officials with the San Antonio Police Department, officer Michael Thornton was struck by a vehicle driven by 24 year-old Kevin Balditt Sunday night on Interstate 35. Thornton had stopped on the Interstate to assist a stranded motorist when Balditt strayed onto the shoulder and struck the officer.

The two motorists Thornton had been helping pulled the officer to safety and called an ambulance. He was transported to Brooke Army Medical Center for treatment. Thornton lost his right foot in the accident. Doctors remain optimistic that his lower leg can be saved so he can be fitted with a prosthetic foot.

Balditt was charged with intoxication assault. He was convicted of DWI in 2005. In 2007, Balditt was arrested again for DWI, but, according to state records, the charges were dropped due to insufficient evidence.
