      A man is facing criminal charges after he was allegedly intoxicated when he hit a pedestrian with his car and fled the scene.

      Brownsville police arrested 25-year-old Michael Esteban Guerrero early Sunday morning.

      Investigators told Action 4 News that Guerrero was driving while intoxicated.

      Guerrero allegedly lost control of his car at a curve and hit a pedestrian on a sidewalk off Expressway 77/83 just south of Price Road.

      Paramedics rushed the pedestrian to a local hospital for medical treatment.

      Officers found Guerrero at a nearby Jack-In-The-Box restaurant where his car allegedly had front-end damage.

      Guerrero is now facing intoxication assault and failure to render aid charges.
