Driver booked after ‘intentional’ collision with girl on scooter, Draper police say

DRAPER, Utah — An 11-year-old girl riding a scooter is in serious condition after being hit by a car — and police say it may have been intentional.

Steven Ray Becky, 19, was driving a 2010 Volkswagen Jetta that collided with the small electric scooter in Draper Friday morning, police say.

Becky was booked facing charges of attempted criminal homicide and driving under the influence, Draper City Police Chief John Eining said in a press conference Friday evening.

The crash occurred in the near 15000 South Winged Bluff Lane in Draper, a residential area, shortly before 8:30 a.m.

Police say the girl was riding south when Becky, traveling north, turned into her. The Jetta hit a landscape boulder, rolled and landed upside-down on a grass parking strip.

“The initial investigation suggests this may have been an intentional act,” the department stated in a press release.

Former Draper City Police lieutenant accused of sexually abusing fellow officer

SALT LAKE COUNTY — A former lieutenant with Draper City Police has been charged with sexually abusing another police officer in his department.

Court documents state Lt. Chad Carpenter of the Draper City Police Department is charged with two counts of forcible sexual abuse for an incident that allegedly occurred January 31.

A Draper City detective who had recently undergone a breast reduction was placed on light duty work, and during that time she said Carpenter called her into his office to talk.

She said Carpenter told her to shut the door before rearranging her clothes to grope her naked breasts.

The woman left the office crying and said Carpenter approached her two weeks later to state “You know I love you right?” Carpenter told the detective they had a special relationship and she could come talk to him whenever she wanted, the document states.

The charges were filed April 30 and Carpenter has not yet been arrested.

Carpenter was placed on leave back in March after the city received a complaint, and he submitted his resignation a short time later.  The city did not disclose the details of that complaint at the time.
