A motorcycle officer's bike was struck during a traffic stop on July 10, 2019 in Arlington. The officer suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

An Arlington officer's motorcycle was pictured mangled on the side of Interstate 30 after it was struck by an SUV during a traffic stop.

The officer was standing not far from his motorcycle when an SUV veered onto the shoulder and struck the bike, said Chief Will Johnson in a tweet Wednesday morning.

The officer was taken to a hospital but is expected to be OK. 

Johnson said the driver of the SUV was arrested on a DWI charge.

"Totally preventable crime," he wrote.
