Ingleside Officer Grennell was sent to the intersection of Mission and Ocean Avenue to investigate a collision where a van collided with several parked motorcycles. When he arrived on scene, the officer found a suspect sitting against a streetlight with the scent of alcohol on his breath and bloodshot eyes, but normal speech. When questioned, the suspect told Officer Grennell that he consumed approximately twelve beers during the last two and a half hours. A witness, who owns one of the motorcycles damaged in the collision, told Officer Grennell that he heard a crash and saw the suspect driving away. He, and the owner of one of the other motorcycles, chased the suspect a short distance and stopped the escape and asked the driver to exit his van.
