LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police say a pedestrian was badly hurt when he was hit by a vehicle driven by a 39-year-old Las Vegas man who was arrested on a drunken driving charge.

Police say 64-year-old Donald Tarr wasn't in a crosswalk when he was hit by a 2014 Chevrolet Camaro a little before 5:45 p.m. Sunday while walking a bicycle across Flamingo Road near Paradise Road.

Tarr was hospitalized at Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center.

The driver, Leonard Yadao, 39, failed field sobriety tests and was taken to the Clark County jail.

Records show that Yadao is being held on a felony DUI charge pending an initial court appearance. It's not immediately clear if he has a lawyer.

Police say two passengers in the Camaro were questioned, but weren't arrested.
