Ceres Police Department spokesman Lt. James Yandell said that the report came in at 2:12 a.m., and that Officer Kiashira Ruiz arrived at the Hatch Road and Herndon Avenue eatery. Ruiz found driver Margarita Fernandez, 23, of Modesto, trying to escape the lane by driving over the grass by the sidewalk but getting her car stuck instead.
