‘Hot Cop’ arrested in San Francisco for hit-and-run

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – A San Francisco police officer known as the ‘Hot Cop of Castro’ has been arrested on suspicion of hit-and-run.

A police statement issued on Sunday says Officer Christopher Kohrs is suspected of plowing into two men who were crossing a city street around 2 a.m. and seriously injuring them.

His good looks has attracted a large following on social media.

The driver ditched his Dodge Charger at the scene and ran away.

Investigators later identified the driver as Kohrs.

The 38-year-old officer was arrested and booked into jail for investigation of felony hit-and-run.

Sgt. Michael Andraychak, a department spokesman, said Kohrs will be placed on leave pending an investigation.

Kohrs gained attention last year when residents of the Castro District, where he often patrolled, began posting pictures and articles about him on social media.
