STEVENSON RANCH, Calif. (KABC) -- A Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy was arrested on suspicion of driving while under the influence of alcohol after he crashed a patrol vehicle and briefly went missing, prompting a search.
The crash happened near Pico Canyon Road and Southern Oaks Drive Friday night. Footage from the scene of the crash showed the patrol vehicle went off the road and into nearby bushes.
A search for him ensued after the vehicle was found abandoned.
The deputy, who was identified as Carlos Lopez, a member of the sheriff's department's special enforcement bureau, was later located about a mile away from the crash scene at a home in a residential neighborhood.
Footage from AIR7 HD shows the 50-year-old being wheeled from the home on a gurney and driven away in an ambulance.
On Saturday, the L.A. County Sheriff's Department said he was taken to Henry Mayo Hospital with no significant injuries.
"The deputy has been relieved of duty and due to the active investigation, we are unable to comment further," the department said in a statement.
Additional details about the crash or the house in which the deputy was later found were not immediately available.
Meanwhile, L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva released a statement Saturday afternoon, saying the incident will be "properly investigated."
