    He was a popular cop, often on patrol in SF's gay Castro district.

    Yes, beautiful people with hot bodies and bulging muscles can screw up and make poor decisions.

    When I hear of hit and run accidents I can only suspect the driver was impaired and runs off until after the alcohol is out of their system. A positive test for drugs or alcohol will only make things worse for them.

    ^ Probably because he was under the influence of alcohol and didn't want that in the report. Anyway, I'm sure his career in law enforcement is over.

    Probably not the best decision for him to make. Very late at night, and he probably was drunk. But getting convicted for hit and run (with serious injuries) is probably much worse than for driving under the influence. I imagine he will be fired from the SFPD, but less scrupulous police employers, like Oakland, or some other county sheriff's office might hire him (or the infamous BART police.)

    The article says he "ditched" his car at the scene. It takes only a few minutes for the cops to discover who the car belongs to. Then they head over to his house and arrest him. Big problems for this guy. (Maybe the car wouldn't run and he couldn't drive off in it. Wonder if he thought he'd run home and report the car stolen?) End of career. Moral of the story: Don't drive drunk.

    Anyone can make a bad decision under the right (or is it more appropriate to say "wrong?") circumstances. As a law enforcement officer he really should have known better and shown better judgment, both before and after the accident. Now he stands to lose so much more than he might otherwise have. Sad to see.

    Wow, that's too bad, why didn't he stop? Although he's not my type, he always has a career in modeling or gogo when this is all over

    California has funny rules about traffic citations - if the police can't positively identify you as the driver of the car when the infraction occurred, they can't cite you. Even if the car wasn't stolen and you're the only one with a set of keys. It could have been anyone driving. And if they can't establish that you were actually drunk at the scene, they can't charge you with DUI. You might have got drunk afterward.

    But as a police officer, being charged with a DUI could get you booted from the force.

    For these reasons, there is a shameful number of hit-and-runs committed by police officers in California. Just a couple years ago there were four officers in Manhattan Beach (a very small department) suspended for plowing into a parked car while cruising around drunk - and a fifth officer suspended for covering it up (he was first on the scene, and let them walk).

    robbaker saidnot so popular now once his ass gets plowed by ghetto thugs in prison icon_wink.gif

    Nobody goes to prison in California for leaving the scene of an accident. At most, a short stint in the county jail (in protective custody). And somehow, I doubt that someone of his build would be submitting to thugs in prison.

    Or any police department in both Louisiana and Texas.
