Sparks Police say they have arrested a Fernley man in connection with a hit & run crash on Spice Island Drive early Monday afternoon.

Police say 52-year-old Robert Totman made a u-turn in front of a motorcycle, and then left heading westbound on Spice Island Drive. 

Eventually officers found the suspect in the 100 block of Greg Street around 5:15 p.m., about three hours after the initial crash in the 700 block of Spice Island. 

As a result of the investigation, offices say they have charged Totman with Leaving the Scene of a Crash Causing Substantial Bodily Harm for leaving the scene of the initial crash.

Officers say they initiated a second case and charged Totman with Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol, a Red Light Violation and Fail to Maintain a Travel Lane. The reason the first case did not result in a DUI charge as well is because Totman was not located within two hours of the initial crash as required by Nevada Revised Statute.

Police say the injured motorcyclist is 32-year-old Cody McGowen. Police had previously identified the wrong person as the victim and apologizes for the confusion.
