Todd Borowksy, owner of the Skin Cabaret in Scottsdale, was cited last week in connection with leaving the scene of an accident.
Borowsky, driving a red 1971 Chevy Chevelle, rear-ended an SUV at the intersection of Scottsdale and Camelback roads at about 4:30 p.m. on December 15, just after the signal light turned green, a police report states.
When the SUV driver and her daughter got out to check on the damage, Borowsky's vehicle lurched forward and hit the SUV again. The SUV owner then asked Borowsky to pull over so they could exchange insurance information.
The Chevelle then pulled away, heading westbound on Camelback. The victims followed in the SUV until the Chevelle turned into the entrance for the Waterfront shops and condos. They saw the driver get out of his car, hand the valet his keys, then walk to a building.
The man was "stumbling and staggering" as he walked inside, the witness told police, leading her to believe he was intoxicated. The victim later identified Borowsky from a photo line-up.
Police were able to meet with Borowsky and his attorney four days later, on December 19. Borowsky was cited for criminal damage, failure to remain at the scene of accident, failure to control speed and failure to update driving and registration records.
New Times left a message for Borowsky, but he hasn't called back yet.
