A number of people were arrested early Saturday after a suspected reckless driver drove onto the sidewalk near the Forum Shops at Caesars on the Strip and pedestrians had to get out of the way to avoid a collision.
At 1:38 a.m., a vehicle driven recklessly ambled onto the sidewalk in the 3500 block of South Las Vegas Boulevard and “caused pedestrians to jump out of the way,” according to posts on X by the Metropolitan Police Department.
