Drugged-Up Man Arrested at Home After Crashing Into Vehicle

Police arrest 22-year-old Livermore man on suspicion of hit-and-run and driving under the influence.

A 23-year-old Livermore man was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of driving under the influence and a hit-and-run, both felonies, California Highway Patrol Officer Steve Creel said.

At around 12:30 p.m. CHP officers responded to a report of a hit-and-run at the intersection of Tesla and Vasco roads.

Creel said Curtis Farmer, driving a Ford F-250 pickup truck, attempted to make a right turn from southbound Vasco Road and onto westbound Tesla Road when he allowed his truck to drift across a double yellow line and into the opposing lane.

Farmer slammed into a stopped vehicle and striking it in the driver's door, Creel said. The door during the collision dislodged from the frame of the vehicle and became attached to the front of Farmer's pickup, Creel said.

Farmer then drove off, but not before witnesses were able to jot down his license plate number.

The lone man inside the hit vehicle was taken to Kaiser in Walnut Creek after he complained of pain on the left side of his body.

CHP officers then turned to to track down Farmer at his Livermore home. When officers arrived they found his pickup truck with the other vehicle's door still attached to it.

Farmer failed a field sobriety test and was arrested and booked into Santa Rita Jail in Dublin, Creel said. His bail is set at $85,000, according to court records.

Creel was unable to provide what type of drug Farmer was suspected of being under the influence of during the incident.

Farmer is scheduled to be arraigned at 11 a.m. Friday in Department 701 of the Gale-Schenone Hall of Justice in Pleasanton.

I don't know who you are but telling me, someone you don't even know, to break up with the person they love sounds to me like you are stepping over some boundaries... My boyfriend and his parents are none of your business so I highly suggest that you don't worry about it :)
Local June 29, 2012 at 04:16 AM
Well Danielle your boyfriend is in some serious trouble. I hope you're ready to visit him in jail!
Danielle June 29, 2012 at 04:25 AM
Well Local I think I know the story a little better than you so like I said don't worry about it. My boyfriend screwed up, but that doesn't make him a screw up
Megan June 29, 2012 at 05:39 AM

Mike S June 30, 2012 at 05:02 PM

Curtis, why don't you grow up and take it like a man? You screwed up. BIG TIME. You could have killed someone or yourself you fool. Shut your childish mouth and OWN UP TO YOUR MISTAKE! You're not gonna do well in jail, kid! You better buck up. Nobody looked your stupid mistake up, it was posted on this website so the people of Livermore can see what's going on in their town.

Curtin LOL
Local July 01, 2012 at 03:01 AM
And if you're serious about us calling you, post your number big guy!
mike July 01, 2012 at 04:31 AM
Keep his parent's out of it. He has brought enough shame on his family, they are not responsible for his actions.
K July 01, 2012 at 08:06 AM
looks like somebody's out on bail...enjoy that freedom while you can!
David July 01, 2012 at 08:42 AM
Ok first off leave everyone out of it, this is everyone's business to read it, but stop trying to tell my boy how to live his life, and also stop passing judgement on others and I think you should all look in the mirror, we have all made mistakes, maybe some not so grave non the less it was a "mistake". He will have to learn from this and it wont be easy, seeing that I have been thro the same exact situation and am now trying to use my misfortune to benefit others. So please ease up on all the hating, we all deal with different trial and tribulations and will all grow through it, some sooner than others. I love you like a lil bro curtis, keep your head up man I will always be here if you need me... God Bless

That's unfair to post a link to the salaries of public employees as posted in the Mercury News in order to figure out who the parents are. There are other public employees that share the same last name but are no way related to this person & they don't need un-necessary attention drawn toward them. The person involved is an adult & responsible for his actions, his parents & their careers have no bearing on his alleged crime.
Local July 02, 2012 at 01:51 AM
I definitely agree that everyone should leave the guy's parents out of it. Curtis Farmer is an adult and no longer his parents' responsibility. I didn't see any post about salaries (got deleted?) but that is absolutely inappropriate and totally irrelevant to this!!
Chris July 02, 2012 at 04:17 AM
He will have to switch to boyfriends apparently.
Chris July 02, 2012 at 04:21 AM
Someone can kill their entire family, and neighbors will say what a nice person they were.
TrueRealist July 02, 2012 at 08:32 PM
He sure sounds like a standup guy. Nearly kills people while committing dual felonies. Yep, that's a real person of character right there.
livermoregirl July 14, 2012 at 08:51 AM
