74-Year-Old Suspect Arrested in Hit & Run on La Cienega

Earlier this week the LAPD called the Twitterdom to action, trying to get them to help spread word about a hit and run that left a valet working at Koi in a coma last week. In the end, it was a tipster who saw the security footage that turned in a 74-year old man late Thursday afternoon, according to the WeHo News.

The family of the victim, 22-year-old Benjamin Zelman, put up an award of $10,000. On Wednesday, the L.A. City Council voted to add $25,000 to that pot.
