Hollywood City Attorney Jeffrey Sheffel was arrested on DUI charges on March 12 after he allegedly crashed his vehicle onto a sidewalk on the Hollywood Boulevard bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway.
The city official faces two DUI charges that include DUI with damage to property or person, DUI with alcohol or drugs, and a citation for driving on a sidewalk. He was held overnight and was released on Monday after posting $1,500 bond.
According to news sources, the crash occurred a little before 6 p.m. on Sunday. Sheffel, 57, purportedly ended up with his 1998 Lexus pinned between an inner guard rail and concrete wall along the bridge. He had to climb out through the driver’s side window to exit the vehicle.
