DescriptionWESTMINSTER – Assemblyman Van Tran was so disruptive at the scene of the police investigation into Councilman Andy Quach's car crash that a sergeant had to threaten him with arrest to get him to stay away, according to incident transcripts released today by the police chief.

Tran said today that he was at the scene because Quach called him and asked that he come, but said he did not interfere in any way.

The Westminster councilman early Sunday morning clipped another car and crashed into a power pole, knocking out power to about 300 homes in his city. Quach has since been charged with misdemeanor drunken driving and driving with a blood alcohol of over 0.20 percent. His blood alcohol at the time was 0.26 percent – more than three times the legal limit.

The Westminster Police Department has been criticized by several community bloggers for failing to release complete information about the accident. Bloggers have also asked why information about another vehicle was not released earlier. They have also raised questions about whether Quach was the sole occupant of the black Mercedes or whether Tran was riding with him.
