Former correctional officer charged with DUI that caused power outage in San Carlos
March 26, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

A former correctional officer left as many as 1,225 San Carlos residents without power early Tuesday morning after drunkenly crashing his truck into a power pole, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Christopher Pettit, 23, of San Carlos, both began and ended his employment with the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office this month, said spokesman Rebecca Rosenblatt.

At approximately 2:14 a.m. March 25, Pettit’s white Chevrolet hit a Pacific Gas and Electric power pole on the 2400 block of Melendy Drive. The collision sheared the pole off at the base, knocking down several high-voltage power lines and causing the outage in the northwest portion of the city, according the Sheriff’s Office.

After performing field sobriety tests, Pettit was arrested on suspicion of driving while under the influence of alcohol, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
