YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: An intoxicated 26-year-old Lodi man hit a 1-year-old girl while having a fight with his sister and then tried to run from officers who took him into custody, authorities said.

Cristian Montero posted $10,000 bail and was released hours after Wednesday’s arrest.

Montero fled in a car and then bailed out and tried to run after officers who responded to his Pasadena Avenue home on the assault report stopped him moments later, Detective Capt. Donald Scorzetti said this afternoon.
