Donald Schwake

On April 24, 2019, at 10:20 pm, officers from the Indian Wells Police Department responded to a single vehicle traffic collision near the intersection of Via Toscana and Fred Waring Drive, Indian Wells.  Upon arrival, officers discovered a black sedan had collided with the entrance gate to a private community.  Officers contacted the driver, Donald Schwake, 46 years, of Marina Del Rey, who showed signs of being under the influence of alcohol.  Schwake refused to participate in any field sobriety tests and was subsequently arrested driving under the influence.  Schwake was transported to a local area hospital as a precaution and was later booked into the Riverside County Jail in Indio for driving under the influence of alcohol.
