SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A San Diego County Sheriff's Department detective has a Nov. 2 court date in Riverside County, where she was arrested this week on suspicion of drunken driving and hit-and-run, authorities confirmed Friday.
Deputies responding to reports of a hit-and-run crash about 8 p.m. Tuesday in Palm Desert were told by a witness that a vehicle with a woman behind the wheel collided with several parked cars and ran over a pedestrian's foot in an apartment complex parking lot, Riverside County sheriff's Sgt. Joe Borja said.
The witness provided investigators with a description of the vehicle and its license plate number, he said.
About 11:40 that night, deputies received a call that a vehicle had crashed into a water fountain at the entrance of the Marrakesh Country Club at 47000 Marrakesh Drive in Palm Desert. The license plate of the vehicle matched the one from the hit-and-run, according to Borja.
