  • Just sayin' says:

    Anyone else find it ironic that Mr Knowitall is asking questions? Typical for a know it all!!

  • lkwd goy says:

    he didnt do anything to warrent being arrested . leaving the scene is just a ticket !

  • lkwd goy says:

    there is no reason to arrest him as per the law , leaving the scene is just a ticket unless your drunk or someone is killed .. or that is my understanding of the law.

  • pshat says:

    To Mr. Knowitall,
    The article says that police “apprehended”him moments later. Apprehended means that they arrested him.

  • Yid says:

    I don’t find it ironic at all that a “Mr. Know It All” would not know it all. In fact, Mr. Know It All’s generally DO NOT know that much at all.

  • mr knowitalll says:

    yes it says “The driver, 17, will be issued summonses, police say”
    they arrested him but he wasn’t charged for hit and run

  • pshat says:

    It’s not unusual to make the arrest but delay charging the perpetrator. Prosecutors often wait to decide what charges to bring; do they only charge with hit and run? Or perhaps DUI as well? Maybe also driving while license suspended, etc.
