A 54-year-old Martinez resident was arrested for felony hit & run in Pleasant Hill on Wednesday.

According to the Pleasant Hill Police Department, just before 10pm on Wednesday, Officers responded to a vehicle accident near the intersection of Nogal Road at Norse Drive. A single overturned vehicle was located at the scene with one person trapped inside. The trapped person was freed by emergency personnel and transported to the hospital with lacerations and suspected internal injuries. The victim is 18-years-old, and is expected to survive.

Shortly after the vehicle was located, 54-year-old Martinez resident Rockwood Sizemore was arrested on suspicion of felony hit & run.

Is it possible that there aren’t already at least ten comments about this guys name (and likely profession)??

DOH! Why do people think they can get away with this? I hope they throw the book at him.

Guess he’s going to need to make a few movies to pay off this “screwup”.

5 missime September 20, 2012 at 9:46 AM

Even worse, to think that there were parents who gave him that name!

Rocky Sizemore….

I just know that name sounds familiar…..I think he’s been a “frequent flier” with the police and deputies.

Wonder if they found he was DUI or on drugs?

“Rocky Sizemore”, now that’s a name I haven’t heard in a long time. We were in the same graduating class in middle school and high school, though his picture did not appear in both the Junior and Senior year high school year books. Yes, he is a real person and that IS his name. I’m sorry to hear that he made a bad situation worse.

I went to school with Rockies son also named Rocky . Stand up kid. Hey things happen, and sometimes people make bad moves.

9 how could he????????889 September 20, 2012 at 10:08 AM

shame on him…he left someone to die by his reckless driving!!!!!!!

10 @ Jay September 20, 2012 at 10:17 AM

r u kidding? people make bad moves? He left someone to die. And it was caused by his actions. That is not making a bad move. That is nearly attempted murder! If that kid died, would you have made such an asinine comment? I think not. Stop making excuses and defending the very people that ruin our society by their “bad moves”.

11 correction of location needed September 20, 2012 at 10:52 AM

the street name is actually Paso Nogal rd ( not Nogal) and it happened near Norse Dr which is near DVC and College Park High for those who are not familiar with the area.

Where are his parents? They should be held responsible!

13 mileena September 20, 2012 at 12:23 PM

Holy cow! I live right by there and never heard a thing.

14 Concord74 September 20, 2012 at 12:38 PM

To Oscar @ #14:
The perp is 54-yrs. old! I seriously doubt that his parents would be responsible!

@Oscar

Either you need to read a little slower and actually comprehend the words written, or you need glasses.

16 martinezdad September 20, 2012 at 1:24 PM

Rockwood Sizemore? Were Dirk Diggler and Anita Dick also in the car? LOL!

17 dilligafman September 20, 2012 at 1:42 PM

HANG HIM!!!

Oscar, sarcasm is wasted on many folks around here.

19 Low September 20, 2012 at 2:46 PM

That’s pretty low to leave the scene and not help the person trapped in the car.

20 Brian Griffin September 20, 2012 at 3:44 PM

Rockwood Sizemore in a fiero? Is he a cartoon character?

21 tiredofscummies September 20, 2012 at 5:29 PM

#18 – really?

22 my 2 cents September 20, 2012 at 5:49 PM

He should be charged with attempted murder!!!!!!!

I got it Oscar!!

23 Anon September 20, 2012 at 6:25 PM

It it was a fiero he was in gay porn.

24 anonagal September 20, 2012 at 6:44 PM

I agree with you Cowellian. It’s hard to convey sarcasm in writing unless you state that it is said with it…..

25 anonagal September 20, 2012 at 6:45 PM

You can run, but you can’t hide. They will come and get you sooner of later. Front end damage, a RED Fiero are hard to miss…….

26 The Starcraft September 20, 2012 at 8:34 PM

Should have dumped the car in the bay. Not because it was suspect for 20001, but just because it was a fiero! :)

27 Joey September 20, 2012 at 10:55 PM

Him and David Rosen should be forced to be rodeo clowns – at a demolition derby!

28 joe splivengate September 21, 2012 at 5:55 AM

OK, so everybody knows what happened? THE REAL STORY: Some crack-head b*t*h stole a dog from the 18yr. old kid (Rocky didn’t know this). Rocky being the good guy he is (acting like Captain-Save A-Ho), swallowed some cock & bull story the floozy gave him(no pun intended!). Then the kid and 2 of his friends ran into Rocky’s car, jumped out and stabbed his car!!!??? Rocky took off and they chased him- they lost control and crashed. He failed to render assistance (call 911), which is a crime. If it was me, I wouldn’t render a can of paint for someone who was chasing me either!

29 Kymberly Kern September 21, 2012 at 8:35 AM

The “vicitim”……the 18 year old KID……(PUPPY)……his name was Zack……He was loved & looked out for…..I am just hearing the news & am trying 2 absorb the shock …..

30 Rosco P. Coltrane September 21, 2012 at 3:44 PM

#29 and #30 are saying what I heard too. Now the word on the street is Zack died from his injuries.

31 joe splivengate September 22, 2012 at 4:06 PM

I am sorry to hear Zack may be deceased- not rendering help is one thing, not rendering and the collateral are 2 different things- They haven’t charged Rocky yet- Monday will tell. . .seems to me this “young lady” is the responsible party- all in all it went5 too far. . .

32 joe splivengate September 22, 2012 at 5:57 PM

UPDATE: They let Rocky go- no charges
