July 31st, 2008
I just received the Taraval Police Station Crime Report For Wednesday, July 30, 2008. And I have to say, this particular incident gave me a chuckle. I’m guessing the commentary at the end was Captain Chignell’s addition.

A woman looked out her window and observed a man driving a car, crash into a parked car, stumble out of his vehicle, start arguing with his passenger, and then get into the car and drive one block away but then stop again as his vehicle was inoperable. The woman called the police with Officers Jordan King and Justin Erb arriving on the scene. The officers made contact with the driver, who was quite inebriated. He stated that he had not been driving at all and that he was feeling “euphoric”. The suspect, who lives on the 1400 block of 48th Avenue, failed field sobriety and chemical tests. He was arrested for drunk driving and hit & run. His euphoria may have dissipated.
