Chandler Police Seek Hit-and-Run Driver

Chandler Police Seek Hit-and-Run Driver

The Chandler Police Department is looking for a guy who sped off after hitting a man with his car early this morning -- an alarming trend here in the Valley of the Sun.

The suspect, according to police, was thrown out of the Draft House Sports Café in Chandler about 1:30 a.m.

After getting the boot, the man jumped in his SUV and ended up driving over a curb and into a cement wall, where another man happened to be sitting.

After hitting the wall (and the victim), a friend of the victim's attacked the suspect and may have punched out his front driver-side window.

The victim is in stable condition in an area hospital.

The suspect is described as a black male, just over six-feet tall, about 300 pounds, and with a pencil thin beard.

The car is described as a 2003 or 2004 pearl-white Dodge Durango with 22-inch chrome rims with thin wall tires.  The bottom (rocker panel area) of the vehicle is accented with a chrome strip. The vehicle has dark-tinted windows, a broken front driver's side window, and damage to right front tire and rim from striking a curb and the small block wall.

Police say the suspect is a regular at the bar and may go by the name "Bishop."

Anyone with information is asked to call the Chandler Police Department at 480-782-4130.
