The officer determined that the male, Charles Kempthorne, 32 of Redwood City had been driving and was under the influence. Kempthorne was placed under arrest and then airlifted to Sutter Roseville with lacerations on his head. The female, 36 year old Christina Beltran of Sacarmanto and her child were transported to Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital. The child, who had beenĀ  approriately secured in the vehicle had no injuries, Beltran experienced minor soreness.

Upon further investigation it was also determined Beltran was in possession of a suspected controlled substance leading to her arrest. An additional charge was added to both Beltran and Kempthorne

Ironically, the trio was returning from a celebration in Reno.
However, Kempthorne was a parolee-at-large with a warrant and crossed state lines without notifying his parole officer- another felony.

Both Kempthorne and Beltran were booked into the Wayne Brown Correctional Facility. Child Protective Services were notified and the child was released to his maternal grandparents.
