LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. — A driver who crashed his Toyota Prius twice after being pulled over by police on suspicion of driving under the influence will be featured on Spike TV's "World's Wildest Police Videos."

Christian Aparicio, a 42-year-old Huntington Beach resident, was arrested Nov. 13, 2010 after police pulled him over near Broadway and South Coast Highway on suspicion of a traffic violation and driving intoxicated. As he tried to park at a gas station, he crashed into the officer's patrol car, officers said at the time.

When Arpacio got out of the car, he apparently left the car in reverse, and it crashed into the patrol car again, police said. The car then lurches forward, slamming into a post and also hitting the gas station's air and water dispenser, breaking a water line.
