The patrol's Cleveland post said the Bratenahl officer was inside his cruiser with the emergency lights flashing when a car struck the back of the police vehicle on Interstate 90 around 12:30 a.m. Sunday in the Cleveland suburb.
Troopers say the car's driver, 61-year-old Vernon Wright, was arrested on charges including operating a vehicle under the influence and driving under suspension. Cleveland Municipal Court records don't show an attorney for the Cleveland man.
The patrol's statement says the officer was treated at a hospital for minor injuries and released. Troopers say Wright had no apparent injuries.
