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.

“The vehicle continued to drive recklessly and caused several traffic accidents,” police stated. “There was minor damage to a citizen and metro vehicles.”

Following a search by police, multiple suspects were taken into custody, police stated.
