Drunk driver arrested after police chase
April 02, 2014, 05:00 AM

William Faleofa

An intoxicated man was arrested after police chased him while he threw beer cans out of his vehicle after he hit a car head-on Saturday, according to San Mateo police.

William Faleofa, 28, was seen holding a beer just before he rammed his Ford Excursion into a truck on Fourth Avenue and Humboldt Street around noon, according to police. Faleofa hit the truck so hard a second driver who was stopped behind the truck was injured. He fled the scene but a San Mateo police sergeant saw him driving back to the area of the crash around 12:30 p.m. The sergeant attempted to pull Faleofa over but he fled onto Highway 101 throwing a box with four empty beer containers from his car, according to police.

About 3.5 miles later, Faleofa finally stopped on the 700 block of Linden Avenue where he was arrested for felony hit-and-run, felony DUI and driving with a suspended license, according to police.
