    Honestly, in the car crash case, it likely would have been hard to get a DUI conviction to stick, but at a minimum I think CPD would have had enough to at least try and ticket him for fleeing the scene of an accident. At a minimum, that’s a serious ticket in terms of getting insurance coverage, and why not at least do that to get something on his driving record to help build future cases if he does something like this again. Maybe they did and it just didn’t get reported, but pretty shoddy work if not.
