WENATCHEE — A motorist cited for traffic offenses after his car was struck by a Wenatchee police officer has been cleared of all moving violations in the case.

Daniel R. Arias, 22, was charged with improper lane usage after a minor July 9 accident in which Officer Jeff Ward’s patrol car scraped his rear bumper. Police later reversed themselves in light of dashboard video that showed Ward improperly crossing two lanes of North Wenatchee Avenue traffic before striking Arias’s car in the center turn lane.
