A close call for a Chico family after an alleged drunken driver nearly ran over a boy. The incident was caught on surveillance cameras. According to his father, George Geiger was sitting at a table on the patio of Inday's Restaurant on West 8th Street in Chico. Around 9:00pm, cameras caught a blue pick-up truck turning off of Walnut Street onto West 8th Street, headed the wrong way on the one way street. The truck is then seen turning into Inday's, and trying to turn around in the parking lot. The driver, Jordan Jiang, 23, backed into a table where Geiger sat several times. Geiger was not injured, but the table was knocked over, and a pallet used as a chair was partially crushed. Says Geiger's father, “He kept backing up over and over, 3 times into this table where my son was. I just want people to see this footage and think about it maybe after they've had a drink if they're thinking about driving."
Chico Police were called, and Jiang was given a field sobriety test, and arrested on suspicion of DUI.
