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 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!!

Someone can kill their entire family, and neighbors will say what a nice person they were.

He sure sounds like a standup guy. Nearly kills people while committing dual felonies. Yep, that's a real person of character right there.
