SAN MARCOS – Two people were arrested early Wednesday morning on suspicion of driving while intoxicated after one drunken driving suspect rear-ended the back of a patrol car carrying another drunken driving suspect.

San Marcos police stopped Breanna Kilgore, who had just turned 24 on Tuesday, in the 100 block of East Hopkins around 2 a.m. on suspicion of drunken driving, police said.

Authorities said they secured Kilgore in the back of the patrol car and were standing near the back passenger side door of the patrol car when Zachary Adams, 21, rear-ended the patrol car. Police said the impact knocked both officers to the ground.
