ST. LOUIS, Mo. A Fairview Heights police officer and his drug-sniffing dog are spending today as their fifth day of recuperating from injuries they suffered when a man accused of driving drunk smashed into a police crusier.

The officer is Jeff Hinson, 37, a veteran of almost three years with the department.

Shortly after 11 p.m. Sunday, Hinson was northbound on Illinois Route 159 in his cruiser. In the back seat was Kenny, a 2-year-old Belgian Malinois.
