COLUMBIA — Missouri quarterback Corbin Berkstresser was arrested early Tuesday morning on suspicion of leaving the scene of an accident after allegedly driving into a parked car.

Columbia police were dispatched at 1 a.m. to the 2900 block of Lynnwood Drive where they found Berkstresser attempting to flee the scene without notifying the owner of the vehicle he struck, Columbia Police Department spokeswoman Latisha Stroer said.

According to the police report, Berkstresser, 20, was driving a vehicle on Lynnwood Drive and hit a vehicle that was parked along the curb. The damage to the victim’s vehicle was to the rear and front passenger side.

No one was injured in the accident.

Berkstresser was arrested and taken into custody at 3:34 a.m. Tuesday. He could face a felony charge for damaging another vehicle if the damage is assessed at more than $1,000.

He was released Tuesday morning after posting bail, which was set at $4,500.
