A Levy County deputy sustained minor injuries Friday, April 27, while he was conducting a traffic stop

According to a Florida Highway Patrol press release, deputy Matthew King, 49, of Bronson, was in a marked 2017 Ford Explorer with emergency lights engaged. The sheriff’s vehicle was parked on the south shoulder of eastbound CR 318 conducting a traffic stop on other traffic. Another vehicle, a 2004 Toyota Sienna driven by Jacqueline E. Laster, 51, of Florida City, was traveling east when it sideswiped the left side of the Ford.

King had opened the door and his left leg was out of the vehicle, according to the press release. He sustained minor injury to his left leg.

Laster was found to be operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol. She was arrested and transported to the Levy County Jail where she refused a breath sample.

She was booked for DUI and issued a citation for violation of the move over law.
