At 11:30 p.m., Wednesday, July 17, an alleged drunk driver was attempting to turn from Santa Clara Avenue onto High Street. He took the turn too widely and crashed into the fence that borders Lincoln Park. He fled from the vehicle, but witnesses pursued him through the park. They called 911 and Alameda Police Department officers arrived and placed the driver under arrest.

Reflecting on Alameda stories written over past 52 weeks

Part 1

Many people in Alameda know that I was born and raised here. I attended local schools and my parents have been active members in this community for more than 50 years. In April, I will begin my 26th year as a member of the Alameda Police Department (APD). It is a tremendous honor and privilege to be the Chief of Police in the city where I was born. I am committed to doing everything I can to make Alameda, my hometown, as safe as possible.
