The driver of the vehicle initially eluded law enforcement after the incident but was arrested in San Francisco the next day on March 15 on an outstanding robbery warrant, according to the San Francisco Police Department. SFPD did not release his name due to the sensitivity of the case. At the time of publication names and court date were not released and the detectives were not charged with any crimes.
