Officer Arrests Drunk Driver After Crash


A Burbank Police officer was in the right place, at the right time, last night.

Around 10:30 p.m. on August 20, the officer was driving by the Ralphs/CVS stores at Buena Vista and Victory, on the way to another call, when she heard a crash. The officer witnessed a vehicle exit the CVS parking lot, with a flat tire and the front of the vehicle dragging on the ground.

The driver of the vehicle, Christina Kahra, 37, of Burbank, was arrested for drunk driving after the officer turned around and made a traffic stop. While the officer was talking with the suspect, a Ralph’s employee appeared and made a statement that he saw the vehicle hit the front of the CVS.
