Nude woman hits naked fiance
Hesperia woman arrested in Phelan for felony DUI
PHELAN • A naked drunk woman was arrested early Thursday morning after driving into her naked fiance, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Around 12:40 a.m., the 22-year-old Hesperia woman and Alberto Giovanni Bravo parked a 2008 Honda Civic east on Phelan Road west of Baldy Mesa Road, according to a CHP news release.
For reasons still under investigation, Bravo, 30, of Victorville, got out of the car and the woman moved into the driver’s seat, CHP officials said. Both were naked.
Bravo walked in front of the car before the female driver accelerated forward and struck him, causing him to land on the hood of the car, according to the release. She abruptly applied her brakes and lost control.
The car veered across Phelan Road and crashed into a chain-link fence north of the street, officials said. The car continued along the fence and hit two trees before it came to a stop.
Bravo was thrown off the hood and fell to the ground, suffering major injuries. He was airlifted to Antelope Valley Hospital.
The woman was transported to Desert Valley Hospital for treatment of minor injuries. She was arrested for felony driving under the influence causing injury and booked into the Victor Valley jail, according to the CHP.
The CHP wouldn’t release the name of the arrested driver. CHP spokesman Matt Hunt said the driver and Bravo were engaged.
“Part of this investigation is of a sensitive nature and still under investigation,” Hunt said in an email. “Until that portion of the investigation is cleared up, we will be holding off on releasing the name.”
Traffic was not affected by this collision.
