ALEXANDRIA, VA - An Alexandria motorist is facing DWI and other charges after his car collided with a Fairfax County police cruiser Saturday night on Route 1 in the Hybla Valley area.
Toney Sampson, 31, was taken into custody after police officers arrived at the scene of the collision and saw him walking around his car. Sampson "appeared to be unsteady on his feet," a police report stated; the officers smelled alcohol and conducted field sobriety tests.
As a result, Sampson was charged with driving while intoxicated, refusal, possession of marijuana and failing to yield the right of way, according to the police.
