(NBC) - A close call was caught on camera when a drunk driver barely missed a police officer in Central Florida.

Lakeland police officer Cory Suttle was in the middle of a DWI traffic stop early Sunday when a truck barreled by, clipping his elbow.

It turns out that driver was also drunk, according to police.

Suttle took off after the pickup, while another officer took over the first DWI stop.

Both drivers are charged with driving under the influence.

The truck driver also faces additional charges.
