Dashcam Video Released: Deputy Injured By Drunk Driver

It looked like a routine traffic stop but things changed quickly when a suspected drunk driver slammed into a Dane County Deputy's squad car.

"I was about ready to open my door and as I did I felt a big thud hit my car. I saw lights go flying by. "

At about 2:30 AM, Dane County Sheriff's Deputy Trent Schafer pulled a Jeep over on Highway 14 just west of the Beltline. He was getting ready to get out of his squad, when a suspected drunk driver rear-ended his vehicle. That driver then slammed into the Jeep that the deputy had originally pulled-over.

Deputy Schafer says, "My first instinct was to get out and at least make sure nobody was injured."

The suspected drunk driver: 20-year-old Stephanie Hallio of Milwaukee.

"She asked why I had my break lights on. She said why'd you have your break lights on. She didn't know she'd hit anybody."

Deputy Schafer says her blood alcoho
