Guam - Admitting that he struck a moped and fled the scene, police arrested Careless Whisper Kottin on Thursday.  Kottin was turning left onto R.S. Sanchez Street when he collided with a moped driver who was traveling West on Sgt. Roy T. Damian Street. 

According to court documents, Kottin admitted to leaving moped driver injured in the middle of the street and fleeing the scene because he was "frightened and was late for work".  A concerned citizen followed him and convinced Kottin to wait for police to arrive at the scene of the crash.  As we reported the moped driver, a 23-year-old Navy man, is listed in serious condition at Naval Hospital. 

Kottin was arrested and charged with leaving the scene of an accident with injuries and property damage, reckless driving with injuries and driving without a license.
