San Andreas, CA — 38 year old Anthony M. Dentley of Murphys was arrested Sunday morning at 4:30 for driving-under-the-influence at the intersection of Parrotts Ferry Rd. and Hwy 4.

Driving a 1974 Toyota Landcruiser Dentley was northbound on Parrotts Ferry Rd. when he ran the stop sign at Hwy 4. He proceeded through the intersection and struck a Caltrans sign post off the north roadway edge of Hwy 4.

Dentley continued north up the elevated embankment bordering on the north roadway edge before striking a rock and causing deep gouges with his rear hitch pin buried in the newly resurfaced asphalt roadway.

Dentley was arrested on site by the CHP and booked into the Calaveras County Jail.
