CALAVERAS COUNTY — The Sheriff’s Office has announced the arrest of a man in connection to a DUI collision with a patrol vehicle last month.

At around 10 PM on Saturday, September 28, a deputy was responding to a report of a missing hunter near Spicer Meadow Reservoir when he was struck head-on by a car being driven by 42-year-old John Ueda.

Ueda, of Brentwood, had been driving westbound when he crossed into the deputy’s lane.

CHP responded and found that Ueda had been driving under the influence, for which he was arrested and charged with DUI accident causing injury, driving with a blood-alcohol level higher than .08 causing an accident, and driving on a suspended license — the first two of which are felonies, the third a misdemeanor.

He has since been booked on $130,000 bail.

The deputy was transported to the Mark Twain Emergency Room to be treated for his injuries.
