The driver then backed up and drove off. That’s when he sideswiped a Rochester Public Transit bus. The deputy was able to stop the man a few blocks away and he was arrested.

The deputy - who was headed to the LEC as his shift was ending - was not hurt. 

Arrested was 45-year-old Eduardo Garcia-Gutierrez. A breath test showed his blood/alcohol concentration was .21.
