Cathedral City Man Endangers Child in Drunken Hit-and-Run

A Cathedral City man was arrested last month after committing a drunken hit-and-run in a stolen vehicle. Guillermo Mariscal Jr. was reportedly driving a stolen car in Indian Wells with his 8-year-old son as a passenger, when he hit a curb attempting to turn onto Club Drive from Highway 111.

Police responded to the incident around 4 p.m. Mariscal and his son fled the scene on foot. When police caught up with them, they arrested Mariscal and booked him at the Riverside County Jail in Indio. He is being held on suspicion of child endangerment, DUI, vehicle theft and hit and run. No injuries have been reported.

Mariscal faces significant jail time if found guilty of the felony charges.

“We’re relieved that the child made it out unharmed. If you suspect someone might be driving under the influence, report it right away, especially if a child is in the vehicle,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
