BY JENNIFER CABRERA

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Vincent Lutrell Mobley, 51, was arrested early this morning after allegedly hitting a pedestrian while driving under the influence and then leaving the scene of the accident.

Around 1:00 a.m. this morning, a pedestrian was hit at 200 W. University Avenue, and a witness told Gainesville Police Department Officers that a white Lexus sedan had hit the pedestrian, then left the scene. The witness noted the tag on the Lexus, and officers went to the address associated with the tag to wait for the Lexus to return. At 1:21 a.m., the Lexus pulled into the driveway of the residence, and the officer wrote that Mobley got out and made spontaneous statements about a traffic crash. The officer wrote that he could smell a strong odor of alcohol on Mobley’s breath.

Mobley reportedly performed poorly on field sobriety exercises and refused to provide a breath sample.

The pedestrian was transported to the hospital and was determined to have non-life-threatening injuries but reportedly had minor bleeding in his brain and abrasions to his face.

Post Miranda, Mobley reportedly admitted that he was driving the Lexus when it struck the pedestrian and admitted that he did not stop to render aid or call law enforcement to report the crash.

  • A terrible story. It’s bad enough him drunk driving, but a hit and run accident causing injury is awful. Hopefully when he goes to court having to fightDUIcharges they are upgraded to a serious felony offense that sticks.

  • As long as he’s woke and a Biden/Pisslosey follower, he can call Kamala, Poe or a Soros org to bail him out if he agrees to march and protest for their misguided causes (CRT, all whites are racist, the US is totally corrupt, 1st grader sex education to include the possibility they’ve been born wrong and need reassignment surgery tomorrow- even if 6 years old, abortion is the best birth control even just as the mother/“they” are already in labor, and lastly: never ask questions about Biden and son Hunter’s sudden wealth or Chinese connection s.

  • Was the victim in the crosswalk? They did all those pedestrian safety things on University Ave to prevent this…the victim wasn’t a panhandler in the median, was he? Most people are in bed at 1am.
