Officer Chris Kohrs, who has more than 50,000 followers on a Facebook fan page featuring his photos, is accused of seriously injuring two men by hitting them with a Dodge Charger as they crossed a San Francisco street around 2 a.m.
The driver of the Charger reportedly got out of the car and fled on foot after the accident. Detectives later identified that driver as Kohrs, police said.
Kohrs has been placed on leave as he faces the felony hit-and-run charge.
A post to the Hot Cop Facebook page said that the page's creator was "deeply saddened and extremely disappointed about the incident," and that he planned to discontinue the fan page.
