Felony DUI charge follows alleged accident at Pacifica bar

Posted on in Felony DUI

A 49-year-old Daly City woman was arrested over the weekend after an alleged incident at a Pacifica bar. The woman faces a felony DUI charge after she allegedly crashed into the establishment around 2:30 a.m. The tavern was closed at the time of the alleged incident; however several people were reportedly standing outside the bar just after closing time.

Police say the woman had been drinking at the bar earlier in the night. Police claim that the woman went from table to table just before the bar closed and consumed the left over drinks that had been left behind by other patrons.

Law enforcement claims that after the woman left the establishment, she got in her truck and attempted to back out of her parking spot. Police say the woman ran into a group of people outside the bar, causing injuries. One person reportedly became pinned between the pickup truck and the establishment in the alleged incident. Several people, including the 49-year-old woman reportedly were taken to the hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

The woman allegedly had parked the truck on the side of the building. Police claim she says she recently bought the vehicle and was not accustomed to driving it. A witness says he saw her having trouble with the vehicle prior to the alleged accident. He says he offered to call a cab for the woman. Results of a blood-alcohol test remain pending.

The woman made an appearance in court on Monday and entered a not guilty plea to the felony DUI charge. Her next appearance reportedly has been scheduled for February 14. The woman is being held on $75,000 bail.
