A Jefferson Parish sheriff's deputy has been hospitalized after his vehicle was struck as he provided security for a film shoot in Metairie.

The sheriff's office says Deputy Sean Williams' police cruiser was hit about 2:20 a.m. Saturday.

Williams suffered a broken right leg and cuts to the face and mouth. He's listed in stable condition at an area hospital.

Gremillion suffered a broken right ankle. After treatment, the sheriff's office says she was booked with DWI, negligent injury and reckless operation.
