A 70-year-old Illinois man was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and slamming into the roundabout on Jefferson Street near PGA West, sheriff's officials said Thursday.
Kenneth Wysoglad, of Park Ridge, IL, was nabbed after he allegedly hit the roundabout while driving with a blood alcohol level greater than 0.08% just before midnight, according to police and jail records.
"He collided with the curb of the roundabout, causing minor collision damage and both left side tires to deflate," Sheriff's Sergeant Ben Ramirez said.
Police had received a report of a possible drunken driver at PGA Boulevard, south of Avenue 54, about 11:55 p.m. Wednesday and, found Wysoglad's empty vehicle with two flat tires a short time later, Ramirez said.
Shortly after 1 a.m., police found Wysoglad on PGA Boulevard and arrested him, Ramirez said, adding that Wysoglad was booked at the county jail in Indio on $2,500 bail, according to jail records.
He was released Thursday morning after making bail.
