The Placer County Sheriff’s Office arrested an intoxicated man driving away from a brush fire last weekend.
According to the sheriff’s office, deputies responded Sunday morning to a minor brush fire in North Auburn. They found a man trying to drive a Subaru Impreza on a dirt path meant for cattle near Bell Road and Gambah Drive.
In a Facebook post accompanying a video and pictures, Placer County Sheriff's Office had this to say about responding to the north Auburn area for a small brush fire that had been caused by a car on Sunday morning: "Upon arrival off of Bell Road, near Gambah Drive, deputies located an intoxicated male attempting to drive a Subaru Impreza through a dirt cattle road. He had started the brush fire when one of his car tires was ripped from the axle. The Placer County Sheriff's Office would like to remind everyone to not drink and drive, because no sober person would believe a lowered Impreza could travel through a cattle field."
