A local woman was arrested on suspicion of felony drunken driving on Sept. 2 when she allegedly backed her Acura into her 20-year-old friend, pinning the second woman between the vehicle and an apartment building in the 4000 block of Promontory Street in Pacific Beach.
The accident, which happened shortly before 9 p.m., left the victim with a broken leg and the driver was arrested for felony DUI.
Ex-fitness center worker released from jail
Christopher Antonio Polley, 26, of Pacific Beach, was released from jail Sept. 6 just hours after he was sentenced to 180 days in jail for identity theft for unlawfully accessing members’ records of a Mission Beach athletic club where he once worked.
Polley received credit for 145 days already served in jail and the sheriff’s department released him hours later, which surprised even Polley’s attorney, who thought Polley had a few more weeks to serve.
Polley pleaded guilty Aug. 8 to identity theft, grand theft and false personation involving unlawful use of records at the Wave House Athletic Club, where he worked from June 2010, until January 2012.
Fourteen other counts of identity theft, receiving stolen property and possession of Ectasy were dropped.
A restitution hearing for the victims will be held in the future when all the losses are totaled. There isn’t an agreement on a restitution amount, which his lawyer estimated at $20,000, but the prosecution suggested the loss could be $40,000.
If Polley violates probation conditions, he could be sentenced to four years in prison.
