On July 7, at approximately 7:15 p.m.

Officers responded to a call of a traffic collision in the intersection of Ocean Avenue and Idaho Avenue. Upon arrival, officers did not see any signs of what appeared to be a collision and contacted dispatch in an attempt to locate the reporting party. Once making contact with the reporting party, she stated that she and her husband were traveling southbound on the 800 block of Ocean on their way to see a movie when she observed a black automobile traveling northbound pull out in front of them in an attempt to execute a U-turn. In an attempt to get the subject’s attention, the victims honked their horn. The subject, later identified as Matthew Levin, 33 of Santa Monica, never reacted to the sound and continued to proceed with his U-turn. Levin collided with the victim’s car causing moderate damage on the side door panel.

When the victim spoke with Levin, he seemed jittery and confused throughout the course of their conversation. Believing that Levin was a danger to himself or others on the road due to possible intoxication, the victim called 911 when she noticed that Levin was attempting to leave the location on foot. With information from a witness, Levin was located in the 100 block of Washington Avenue. While speaking with Levin, the strong odor of alcohol was emitting from his breath and person. Levin was booked for driving under the influence of an alcoholic beverage and was cited out. Bail was set at $30,000.
