A La Crosse police officer is recovering from injuries he suffered Monday night when a suspected drunk driver hit his squad car. Nineteen-year-old Jacob Schwalbach was arrested on several charges, including operating while under the influence causing injury. The officer’s name wasn’t released. He was treated and released from a local hospital. Investigators say Schwalbach failed to stop at a red light and slammed his vehicle into the squad car while going about 45 MPH. Schwalbach is scheduled to return to court next week.
