    Deuce Suspect Arrested Near Scene

    A very good night at work

    Suspect arrested in fatal hit-and-run with bicyclist

    12:45 a.m. December 5, 2008
    ALPINE An Alpine man suspected in Tuesday's fatal hit-and-run collision with a bicyclist was arrested Thursday night after he went into a bar in view of the victim's friends and family at a candlelight vigil, authorities said.

    Relatives and friends of Edward Costa, 30, of Alpine were gathered at the spot on Alpine Boulevard near East Victoria Drive where he was killed, California Highway Patrol Officer Brian Pennings said.

    About 6:15 p.m., some in the group saw a white Ford F150 pickup with front-end damage drive past and pull into the Liars' Club bar parking lot, Pennings said. He said the witnesses, knowing the CHP was looking for a truck of that description as the hit-and-run vehicle, called the county Sheriff's Department.

    Deputies found Travis Weber, 44, in the bar and detained him for the CHP. Pennings said Weber was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving to the bar and on suspicion of felony manslaughter and hit-and-run from Tuesday night's collision.

    Pennings said the CHP received hundreds of tips, and Weber was one of several people mentioned by tipsters as a possible suspect in the case. Investigators had been trying to find Weber and the others named. Pennings said officers are confident that Weber was the driver behind the wheel of the Ford pickup, which was towed Thursday night as evidence.

    What a jackass. Creature of habit and drunken stupidity. May the victim rest in peace.

    By the way, this all happened across the street from the Alpine Station - they have the truck on video surveillance.

    The victim was hit from behind, thrown off his bike at least 30 feet, and then run over by the vehicle - all in the bike lane.

    There is NO excuse for driving under the influence. I personally think it should be zero tolerance no matter what age you are. I'm thankful that CA has a section (23152(a)CVC) that allows me to arrest someone for "being under the influence". There is no "legal limit". If I have probable cause to feel that you are under the influence I can arrest you. I have arrested people for .04 (they prosecuted). all the .08 level here means is that is the level that you are presumed to be intoxicated. Anything under that it is the arresting officer's burden to prove intoxications (take good notes for FSTs). It pisses me off when officers let someone go because they were .07. You don't know if that person is going up in intoxication or to what level he is currently impaired.
