Contra Costa County sheriff’s deputies arrested a 48-year-old woman Sunday on suspicion of attempting to kill her spouse after she struck him with a car in a parking lot near Concord, sheriff’s officials said today. Deputies responded to a report of a possible DUI driver in a parking lot on John Glenn Drive near the Buchanan Field Airport at 6:19 p.m. Sunday, sheriff’s officials said.
Deputies found a 53-year-old man who had been struck by a car in the parking lot and transported him to John Muir Medical Center in Concord. Police arrested Bridget Metzler, of Bakersfield, at the scene and she was booked into county jail. On Tuesday, the Contra Costa District Attorney’s Office filed formal charges against Metzler, including attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, hit-and-run and inflicting corporal injury to a spouse. Metzler remains in county jail on $955,000 bail.
