A Riverside police officer who admitted to drinking beer while off duty, getting into his city-issued car and sending a text message before crashing into a parked semi truck in Temecula, and then leaving the scene without immediately reporting the incident, will not be arrested.
But Chad Milby, who was once a lieutenant, is now a sergeant — one rank lower — ased to patrol, said Riverside police Lt. Melissa Bartholomew. The driver of the truck did not want to press hit-and-run charges, Vasquez said, so there was no victim.
Some crimes, such as domestic violence, can be prosecuted with the state of California as the victim, Vasquez said, but hit and run is not one of them. The deputy who questioned Milby, whose name was redacted from the report provided to The Press-Enterprise, said he was dispatched to a report of a hit and run involving a semi at p.
April The deputy examined the semi and found only a scuff on a tire. Milby reported the crash to the Riverside Police Department, the deputy wrote. The deputy did not specify when. It also bans, without permission, drinking any alcohol within four hours before driving.
Milby told the deputy that his airbag deployed when he hit some unknown object, but he did not stop because he did not see any vehicles or injured pedestrians. He did not immediately check for damage to his car.
Milby called the deputy the next day to add that he was responding to a text message from his wife at the time of the crash. By Brian Rokos brokos scng.
