SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

A 28-year-old Santa Barbara man was arrested at 8:30 a.m. Thursday on charges of  driving while intoxicated.

He was also involved in a hit-and-run incident when he ran his Ford Focus into a van on Las Positas Road, south of Highway 101, according to the Santa Barbara Police Department.

Landon Grey Robinson was taken into custody near his residence on Leslie Drive, police Sgt. Riley Harwood said.

Robinson continued to drive after the collision and drove north on Las Positas before turning onto a one-way street in the wrong direction on Calle Real, police said.

He then turned on to Leslie Drive, where he was intercepted by several officers, police.

Robinson had a blood-alcohol measurement of 0.34 percent, which is more than four times the level at which a driver is considered drunk under state law, Harwood said.

He was booked at Santa Barbara County Jail on misdemeanor charges of DUI and hit-and-run, Harwood said. Bail was set at $5,000.

No one was injured in the initial collision, Harwood said.
