Sassy Claremont driver gets arrested for DUI
An admitted drunk driver hit a parked car, injuring the passenger in her vehicle.
Claremont resident Natalie Fordyce, 24, was driving south on Claremont Boulevard from Ninth Street around 1:24 a.m. when the car drifted to the right and struck a grey Ford Escape that was parked on the west curb at Sixth Street. The victim, a 27-male Pomona resident, was sitting in the right front passenger seat and received a laceration to the mouth and complained of pain to his neck, shoulder and hip. During the investigation, police determined the driver was under the influence of alcohol and her license was also suspended. The officer asked the driver where she was before the crash to which she responded, “I didn’t know and it doesn’t matter.” When asked by the officer if she was driving down the street, she looked confused and said, “Dude I’m drunk.” The sassy gal was arrested for DUI, booked at Claremont jail and later released on a $100,000 bond.
