Former U.S. Secretary of Commerce and San Marino resident John Bryson was involved in three hit-and-run accidents in San Gabriel on June 9th. Listen to the 911 call that reported his eratic driving above.
Bryson's office attributed the accidents to a seizure.
A police report states that a "low end of therapeutic levels" of the sleep aid Ambien were found in Bryson's blood, and there was no evidence of other drugs or alcohol. The police report also shows that two doctors who treated Bryson after the incident said that confusion, an after-effect of a seizure, was to blame for the accident.
The 68-year-old was not charged; the District Attorney's office cited insufficient evidence to go forward with the case.
Bryson resigned from his position following the incidents.
