SAN ANTONIO -

Police say an officer slammed into an intoxicated man who walked into the path of a patrol car early Saturday.

Now that man is at University Hospital.

It happened just after 2 a.m. in the 9500 block of Console.

SAPD says the intoxicated man left a bar after they refused to serve him.

A bartender tried to call the man a cab, but he took off and walked onto Console.

Police say a passing officer hit the man.

They say the officer tried to avoid the impact but did not have time to stop and crashed into the victim.

Police say the man's injuries were not severe.
