Arnold, Ca — 41-year-old David Kotoff of Arnold swerved to miss a deer while driving on Flanders Dr., just south of Moran Rd. Sunday night at 6:25pm.
Kotoff proceeded to drive off the road and collided with a tree. In most cases such as this, the deer is considered at fault. This time, however, was different.
“Unfortunately Mr. Kotoff was determined to be under the influence,” says CHP Officer Jaimie Castillo. “That will be submitted to the District Attorney for filing of charges.”
Castillo reminds residents to not drink and drive, and keep an eye out for deer this time of year.
