CORPUS CHRISTI - Reading Pat Suter's arrest report, you will find she shows quite a bit of concern for her car but none for Richard Leshin. The man police say she hit then left lying in the street with serious injuries.
The report shows a conversation officers had with Suter when they got her to sign a consent form to have her car searched in connection with the hit and run.
While signing the form an officer says she said "poor thing." The officer asked her to repeat herself and she told him, "my poor car." At that moment the officer told her ,"you should be saying 'poor Mr. Leshin'." She immediately said Mr. Leshin should have had light on his bicycle.He informed her that he did, then she went on to say, "he should have worn more reflective clothing." At that point the officer says he advised her to stop talking.
We also learned from the report that as soon as we reported what type of vehicle police were looking for, Suter's son realized it was his mother's. She had even told him the day of the accident that she thought she hit a trash can. After seeing the news report he realized differently and called an attorney. The attorney then contacted police.
Suter spent the night in jail Wednesday, but was able to post her $50,000 bond. She is charged with leaving a scene of an accident causing bodily injury.
