Drunken driving suspect and deputy crash

A Walworth County Sheriff's Office deputy was injured by an alleged drunken driver while on duty early Monday morning.

Deputy Richard Johnson was patrolling in a marked 2008 Crown Victoria on Highway 12 south of Sheridan Springs at 3:20 a.m. when dispatchers received a report of a car driving west in the eastbound lane of Highway 12 near Lake Geneva, according to a news release.

Johnson was at that stretch, but unaware of the approaching 1997 Ford Thunderbird. He activated his emergency lights and tried to avoid the other car, but the vehicles struck head to head, off center, the release stated.

Horvath, 28, Lake Geneva, was arrested for endangering safety by reckless driving and causing injury by operating while intoxicated.

Johnson was treated and released at Lakeland Medical Center.
