A D.A.R.E. officer's vehicle was hit head on by a man who is charged with drunk driving.

The accident happened last night around 10 p.m. as the officer was driving north on Joor Road. Police reports say Jacob L. Rester, 29, crossed the center line and hit the deputy head on.

Rester failed a field sobriety exam and was booked for DWI and Careless Operation of a Vehicle.

Toxicology results are pending on a urinalysis from the LSP crime lab.

The D.A.R.E deputy received only minor injuries.
