Officers Lane and Lopez notice a car driving with heavy front end damage, it quickly turns in to a driveway and parks. Officers talk to the extremely emotional female who was driving. The damage on the car was fresh and she claims to have hit a pole. Officers load her in the car and go looking for the pole she “hit”. They can’t find it and begin to break down her lie, she ends up admitting to hitting a car. We get to the real scene and speak with the vehicle owner (who had just called police about the hit and run) and witnesses.
