CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) - Corpus Christi police have reunited a suspected drunken driver with his arm after the prosthetic limb was left behind following a car accident.

Sr. Officer Marc Harrod said Friday that police located the man’s right arm in the vehicle, then found him walking nearby.

Harrod says 23-year-old Juan Gutierrez of Corpus Christi allegedly left the scene of the one-car wreck early Thursday. Gutierrez and a passenger were treated for minor injuries.

Gutierrez was booked on a misdemeanor driving while intoxicated charge, with bond set at $1,000. Nueces (nyoo-AY’-sis) County jail records did not list an attorney for Gutierrez, who was no longer in custody Friday.

Harrod says the limb was returned to Gutierrez while he was in jail.
