California DUI lawyer news

A Los Angeles police sergeant whose patrol car collided head-on with that of an alleged California DUI / drunken driver whose headlights were off was released from a hospital Monday after being checked out for minor injuries.

"He was a little banged up, but he's home now," said a California DUI official.

The name of the officer involved in the wreck was withheld.

Carlos Revlorio, 25, was booked on suspicion of felony California DUI / drunken driving and locked up in lieu of $100,000 bail.

The California DUI collision on San Fernando Road just north of Osborne Street occurred about 10:30 p.m. Sunday, just a short distance from the Foothill Station.
The police car was going north on San Fernando when it was struck head-on by a Toyota Camry with its headlights off, knocking the officer's car into two parked cars, without causing injuries to the passengers in the California DUI driver's car.

The suspect had just made an illegal U-turn mid-block.

The man then failed a California DUI sobriety test and was booked was for California drunk driving / DUI .
