    Deputy critically injured by suspected drunken driver in Bothell

    By Jennifer Sullivan

    Seattle Times staff reporter

    A King County sheriff's deputy is listed in critical condition this morning at Harborview Medical Center after he was struck by a suspected drunken driver in Bothell early Sunday morning.

    The deputy had just finished working at the Torchlight Parade and was riding home on his personal motorcycle around 1:30 a.m. when he was struck by a pickup that was leaving the Cozy Inn Tavern, 6215 N.E. Bothell Way, said sheriff's spokesman John Urquhart.

    The 56-year-old Metro Transit Police detective has been with the department for 23 years, said Urquhart. His name is not being released.

    The 36-year-old Phoenix man driving the pickup was booked into the King County Jail for investigation of vehicular assault.

    Well, it says deputy. But their title is usually Deputy Sheriff.

    PDawg, you are correct. However, there is only 1 Sheriff, and he is only referred to as the sheriff. Each deputy is always called a deputy, or deputy sheriff, but never sheriff. Prayers are enroute.

    Sorry if I used the wrong terminology, he is a deputy. Just heard an update on the news. He lost his right leg, but his condition has improved. I hope they nailed the scumbag who hurt him.

    Why yes Rob, I know that....but the newspaper article stated it rather badly...I was explaining why they made the mistake.

    Awkwardly, Don (which I believe is the officer's name) is my mother's ex-boyfriend.

    O.o

    He did end up losing his leg, but he should pull through just fine, otherwise.
