Man charged with DUI after crash involving Augusta County deputy
Police say an intoxicated driver struck an Augusta County deputy's vehicle on Wednesday night.
Around 7:46 p.m. on May 27, a deputy with the Augusta County Sheriff's Office was pulling out from a home in the 1600 block of Stover School Rd. where he had just served a warrant when he was clipped by a 1987 Chevy Suburban, according to Virginia State Police.
That's in the Middlebrook area of Augusta County.
State Police say the deputy had a prisoner in the back seat who he had just taken into custody.
The driver of the Suburban that ran into the deputy's vehicle was identified as James Gima, who had no established residence. Police believe he had been living out of his vehicle.
Gima was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, possession of marijuana, and driving without a license.
No injuries were reported.
