No injuries have been reported from the incident. One of the vehicles was shoved into a garage door because of the collision. Deputies that responded to the incident arrested Gable on suspicion of driving under the influence and hit and run.

One witness, Geno Bahena, told KTLA-TV, “It took him a few seconds to get out of his truck. And finally, when he got out of his truck — I guess he was in shock or something — he just fell on the floor.”

Gable was held on $15,000 bail and released from custody at 11:40 p.m. on Tuesday after being taken to a hospital for a blood test.
