A spokesperson for the Laguna Beach police Department said they’ve arrested a man on suspicion of DUI, and felony hit-and-run, following a mid-January collision.

The incident happened on Jan. 19, according to a report by, after the 21-year-old suspect crashed his car into “a structure and a gas line.”

The crash happened just after 1 a.m., the report notes, but the now-defendant didn’t stick around to talk to the police.  He took off on foot but officers said they took him into custody at his residence, which was located about a block from the crash site.

The man was booked at the Laguna Beach Jail on suspicion of felony DUI.  He’s also being charged with hit-and-run, since he fled the scene of the crime.  His bail bonds were set at $100,000.

It’s unclear if he hired a Laguna Beach bail bonds company to help get him out of jail.
