Man Arrested for DUI After Crashing Into Mobile Home

The Rohnert Park resident said he was dropping off a friend at Rancho Felize Mobile Home Park when he mobile home early Saturday morning.

A Rohnert Park man was arrested for driving under the influence in the early morning hours Saturday, after he crashed his mother's Saturn into a double-wide trailer in the Rancho Felize Mobile Home Park on Redwood Drive.

The driver, Jose Guadalupe Ayala, 28, was arrested by Rohnert Park police for DUI. Ayala's breath test showed he had twice the legal limit of alcohol in his system.

When officers arrived on scene, they discovered almost the entire front end of the vehicle was jammed under the mobile home. Ayala had fled the scene in an attemt to get rid of the car's license plate, registration and proof of insurance. Officers discovered the car information thrown over an area fence.

"Ayala said he took the items to conceal them so he could leave the car there and we we wouldn't be able to figure out that it belonged to his mother," police said.

Upon further investigation, police said the suspect, who also lives in the mobile home park, was dropping off a friend at another residence in the park at 1:44 a.m. Saturday. He allegedly told police he swerved while attempting to light a cigarette. That's when officers conducted a sobriety test.

Ayala was booked into Sonoma County Jail on DUI charges. 

The mobile home received "minor damage," from the collision, police said. One resident of the mobile home reported back and neck pain, after her bedroom was shaken from the accident.

What a moron, taking the plate and other information doesn't do any good. All the police hve to do is run the vin, but he really wasn't that smart to being with.
