Guam - A local senator found himself being called to the Tumon-Tamuning Precinct today.  Senator Adolpho Palacios was given a citation for leaving the scene of an accident on Wednesday, but the Democrat lawmaker contends he was never in an accident. 

Apparently a witness reported to police that they saw Palacios trying to pull into a parking stall at the Outrigger Hotel parking garage yesterday.  Palacios admits he realized that the stall was too tight for him to get into and says he pulled out and moved to another parking space.   In doing so, the lawmaker contends he never hit another car. 

But the owner of the vehicle, who did not wish to be identified publicly, confirms that he had damage to the driver's side door and cab area of his vehicle.  He says a witness saw and heard the senator's black Toyota Camry that has a Palacios sticker on the side, hit his vehicle.  He adds the parties are working through the matter cooperatively. 

Palacios meanwhile says he fully intends to contest the citation during a court hearing scheduled for October 12.
