From the Florida Highway Patrol

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office was called to 6200 block Tributary Street in Pensacola in reference to a neighbor calling the homeowner for an unknown white Chevy sedan sitting in its front yard. The sheriff’s office responded and attempted to make contact with a male who was asleep in the driver’s seat. The male woke up and began reversing his sedan causing the back bumper to collide with the front push bar of the deputy’s patrol car.

The Florida Highway Patrol arrived on the scene to investigate the crash and arrested the male driver of the sedan, Kenneth Lee Murphy, 28 of Cantonment, for Driving Under the Influence.

Neither Murphy nor the law enforcement on the scene sustained injuries in the incident.
