[ARCHIVED] DUI Ruins Family Christmas

Christmas DUI TC Hemet Police

DUI Ruins Family Christmas

At approximately 3:18 AM, on Christmas morning, Hemet PD dispatch received a 911 call, reference an injury traffic collision at Stetson and Sanderson Ave. Officers responded to the scene and were notified that a male involved in the collision was running from the intersection towards Wal-Mart.

Officers arrived and obtained a description of the suspect who fled, and notified other responding units. On scene officers also advised that the suspect was possibly intoxicated due to the strong odor of alcohol inside the vehicle.

Hemet units were conducting an area check near Sanderson Ave. and Mustang Way, when they spotted the suspect. As they approached, he began running west bound Mustang Way to north bound Morgan Hill and west bound Murray Hill. The suspect was apprehended with the help of an electronic control device. The suspect sustained minor injuries from the collision and was medically cleared at a local hospital. A Hemet Police Officer was also injured during the arrest but did not require medical attention.

The suspect was identified by witnesses at the scene as the driver that caused the injury traffic collision, sending a 36 year old Hemet mother and her 17 year old daughter to Regional Medical Center on Christmas Day for medical treatment. After hearing about the incident Chief Dave Brown said, “It sickens me that a completely preventable crime injured a mother and daughter and ruined their holiday. We will continue to take a zero tolerance stand against drunk drivers.”

20001(a) CVC - fleeing the scene of an injury traffic collision
