San Diego sheriff's detective arrested for DUI in Palm Desert

Posted: Updated:

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.

Barbara Jean Crozier, 47, was arrested and booked at the Indio jail on suspicion of hit-and-run and driving while intoxicated, Borja said.

Crozier was released on $50,000 bail early Wednesday and is scheduled to appear at the Indio courthouse on Nov. 2, according to jail records.

The detective works out of the Santee substation, a representative from the San Diego County sheriff's personnel department confirmed. Her current status with the department was not immediately known.
