Police: DUI driver hits Rohnert Park police car, bites paramedic

Driving drunk, a Rohnert Park woman Monday night crashed into two vehicles, including a police car, kicked at officers and bit a paramedic, according to a police official.

Officers arrested Andromeda Hartwell, 22, suspecting she was intoxicated at the time of the late‑night collisions.

The first collision was at 10:25 p.m. in the intersection of Commerce Boulevard and Golf Course Drive. A woman called police to say her car had been struck by a gray Honda Odyssey whose driver began to exchange information then drove away.

The victim gave officers a license plate, leading to a Rohnert Park address on Jasmine Circle. As a sergeant arrived on the street he saw the approaching van and put on his emergency lights to stop the driver. She collided with the front of the police vehicle, according to officials.

Officers took Hartwell into custody, saying she kicked at them and struggled to get away. Her passenger, Sergio Johnston, 34, of Santa Rosa was wanted on a no‑bail warrant for violating parole and he was taken to the Sonoma County Jail.
