WAUWATOSA---Police released disturbing dash cam video of a police officer's close encounter with an impaired driver.

It happened back in August. The driver was just recently charged.

In the video, a pick up truck comes speeding into view. It crosses the center line over to the wrong side of the road heading straight for the parked police squad.

The officer was standing outside of his vehicle in the path of the truck.

It narrowly missed him and ended up on a support cable of a utility pole.

"I got a car up on a support cable," you can hear the officer say to dispatch on the video. "She came within about a foot of hitting me."

Investigators say the woman behind the wheel is 35-year-old Jessica Domenget.

Court records say she admitted to taking a series of medicationss and narcotics.

This incident was her second OWI offense.

She's also charged with endangering safety.
