Driver arrested on suspicion of hitting cars

A suspected drunken driver was apprehended in downtown Steamboat Springs on Wednesday night after allegedly striking four parked cars on Lincoln Avenue.

Timothy Cychosz of Hayden is suspected of sideswiping four cars parked on the east side of the 800 block of Lincoln Avenue, about 6:15 p.m. in front of F.M. Light and Sons and Cantina Mexican Restaurant.

Cychosz allegedly fled the scene, abandoning his damaged 1997 GMC pickup in a parking lot at Ninth and Oak streets, before he was apprehended on foot at Lyon Drug, according to dispatch. Steamboat Springs police and Routt County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to the scene.

Cychosz was seen urinating on the street before getting into his vehicle, Steamboat police Sgt. Gerard Geis said. He was arrested at the scene and transported to Routt County Jail.
