Peter Dinsmoor, 46, was charged with leaving the scene of an accident after a bicyclist was hit by a vehicle late Sunday afternoon.

According to a Maricopa Police Department probable cause statement, Dinsmoor was driving a white pickup in the parking lot of Headquarters Lounge about 5 p.m. He was attempting to exit the parking lot when he collided with a man on a bicycle on John Wayne Parkway and then allegedly left the scene.

The man on the bicycle was described as a “Mexican male with a beard.” The man told police the driver looked at him after hitting him and continued down the roadway.

A witness at the lounge stated Dinsmoor had two beers while receipts indicated he had purchased four beers. A driving history showed his license was revoked for DUI in Oregon, and Dinsmoor told officers he was on probation for DUI.

The bicyclist sustained a bad ankle injury and was limping, according to the report. Dinsmoor consented to a blood alcohol test. Results have not been released.
