Shortly after the alleged crash, the eyewitness claimed an unknown woman fled the scene. The person also claimed Brian himself appeared to be drunk. “He kept saying ‘I’ll buy you 12 cars! Don’t call the cops!'” the eyewitness said.
Though the police arrived on the scene moments later to conduct a DUI investigation, Brian was already long gone. “The cops ran his plates so they knew his address,” the eyewitness said. “They went to where he lives, and no one answered the door.”
Brian allegedly returned to the scene of the crash and apologized for the damage. However, no charges were filed.
