Sheriff's investigator slightly hurt in crash

Authorities arrested a 48-year-old man on drug charges after they say he rear-ended a Pinellas County Sheriff's Office vehicle stopped at a red light Friday evening. Robert Mistkowski, of Holiday, faces charges of possession of diazepam and oxycodone.

Child protection investigator Jennifer Wilson was stopped about 7:30 p.m. at Omaha Street and Alderman Road when Mistkowski's four-wheel-drive vehicle struck her vehicle, according to the Sheriff's Office. Wilson, a non-sworn employee at the agency, was on her way home. Her 1-year-old daughter also was in the car. The child was not injured, and Wilson sustained minor injuries.
