Las Vegas Metro Police Lt. Peter Kisfalvi reported that a white pickup truck struck a pedestrian who was crossing West Charleston Blvd.  Hooper was later arrested and charged with DUI – drugs and hit and run.

On July 27, 2017, at approximately 10:14 pm, a fatal pedestrian collision occurred at the intersection of West Charleston Boulevard and South Scholl drive. Evidence at the scene and witness statements indicated a pedestrian was walking north across Charleston Boulevard at the intersection with Scholl Drive when she was impacted by an eastbound Ford pickup. The pedestrian was knocked to the roadway and slid to a stop. The Ford continued east and left the collision scene. The operator of the Ford did not stop to render aid or call the police.
