On April 11 at approximately 4:30 p.m., officers received a radio call of a traffic collision at the intersection of Stewart Street and Olympic Boulevard.
One of the drivers was reportedly walking around in the middle of the street, acting disoriented. When officers arrived they detained the subject in the middle of the intersection who was walking around, sweating profusely, mumbling unintelligible words and had a dazed look on his face.
The officers attempted to conduct a field sobriety test on the subject, but he immediately tensed up and resisted.
Based on the physical objective symptoms, coupled with evidence located at the scene, the officers arrested the subject for driving while under the influence of narcotics and causing injury to another party. Santa Monica fire officials arrived on scene and treated the victim involved in the collision.
Victor Nathieu, 42, of Gardena, had bail set at $100,000.
