DENVER (CBS4) – A man who allegedly struck an off duty police officer with his vehicle is facing several charges.

Police arrested Jeremy Irey, 25, for assault to a peace officer and felony vehicular eluding after the incident on Saturday night.

Investigators believe Irey drove away after striking the police officer at the Pepsi Center. That prompted a pursuit that ended with a crash on northbound Interstate 25 under I-70.

Alcohol may have been a factor in the incident.

The officer suffered minor injuries.
