Sources within the Menlo Park Police Department have confirmed that officers are looking for a suspect that crashed into an area fire hydrant and knocked it loose at its base.
The accident sent water spouting into the air for quite a period of time, they said, and the water damaged a nearby home. Since the driver failed to let the water service provider know there was a problem, they are wanted for violating a section of the CA Vehicle Code.
Officers have not said whether the crime would be classified as a misdemeanor or a felony, although if it is determined the driver was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time the accident took place they will be charged with felony DUI.
If the charge escalates to this type of offense the suspect would be arrested, booked at the Maguire Jail and would need to post bail bonds in order to secure their release from custody.
