The president of the Saddleback Valley Unified School District board has been arrested for allegedly resisting arrest, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Department.

Dennis Walsh is accused of trying to prevent deputies from having his vehicle towed Monday after it was believed to have been involved in a non-injury, hit-and-run collision with a fire hydrant.

Deputies went to Walsh's home in Lake Forest after the collision and spotted the car in the driveway, sheriff's spokeswoman Gail Krause told Rancho Santa Margarita Patch.

"When deputies told the registered owner, Dennis Walsh, that the vehicle was evidence in the non-injury, hit-and-run collision and would need to be towed, he became uncooperative and tried to stop the deputies from towing the vehicle," Krause reportedly said.

The hit-and-run investigation is ongoing. Walsh and the district are mum on the arrest so far.

We really have no end to the schmucks who have major responsibilities and cannot be responsible for their own behavior?

Really? Do you think you have the right to get involved in a hit and run an AND NOT expect consequences?

After a hit and run accident involving a fire hydrant? Did he forget to leave a note?

I don't blame him one bit! He had a right to be angry and resist. They should have produced evidence to a judge to obtain a warrant before taking the mans property. This over reaching authoritarian form of law is completely unjust.

The headline sounds circular - "he got arrested for resisting arrest" - clearly, they had to have already been arresting him for him to resist arrest. So, perhaps it should've said he was arrested for interfering with an investigation, and then he was also charged with resisting.

Arrested for resisting arrest? Were they just randomly arresting passersby when he resisted?
