EL PASO, Texas -- The driver who allegedly struck and seriously wounded an El Paso firefighter — and then drove off — earlier this month has been arrested, police announced Tuesday night.

The SUV involved in the incident was also found, El Paso police said, indicating that "a tip from a citizen who 'heard something'" led to the arrest of 46–year-old Shiloh Danielle Hutchings.

Hutchings was being held Wednesday in the El Paso County downtown jail on $100,000 bond on a charge of 'accident involving serious bodily injury.'

Court records reviewed by ABC-7 on Wednesday reflected that Hutchings has a history of driving offenses and other arrests dating back two decades.

She has faced charges of drunk driving, driving without a valid license and driving without insurance. Other past criminal charges included assault causing bodily injury, property theft and drug possession.

Police, along with the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Service fugitive task force, arrested Hutchings on Tuesday afternoon at a hotel on Dyer Street. Her arrest came after officers said they also found the involved vehicle, a blue 2006 Chevrolet Tahoe with no plates, at a business on Rushing Street.

Firefighter Armando Lopez was hurt after responding to an accident scene on Transmountain Road at Paseo Del Norte during the early morning hours of Feb. 12 in what police called a hit-and-run.

Authorities had launched a city-wide search for what was described as a dark colored SUV or pickup truck with windshield damage that left the scene after hitting the firefighter.

As of late last week, friends said Lopez was still trying to recover from his injuries and remained hospitalized in stable condition. They set up a GoFundMe account to aid in paying his hospital bills.

      1. Just found out it’s a “her.“ But you were absolutely correct on how the judges work here in El Paso. The little five-year-old stabbing victim is testament to your statement. Disgusting, is what the judges are.

        1. K1DPR, THE EL PASO WHITE BIGOT TRYING TO DEFLECT LIKE HIS DIARRHEA TRUMP. THE JUDGE DIDNT STAB THE GIRL. THE KNIFE DID. BAN JUDGES? LOL. DONT FORGET IT WAS A MILITARY HALF-ER WITH A WHITE LAST NAME. COO COO BIRD. POOR BRED BREED? NOBODY WANTS THEM AROUND ANYMORE. HEY! LOOK, MARIA MET BRET. OH SHIT! NOT ANOTHER ONE.

      2. HEY MADMIKE, HOW DO JUDGES WORK IN EL PASO FOR YOUR HERO? PATRICK CUSIOUS. PLEA: ? NOT GUILTY. FREE DEFENSE ON YOUR MISERABLE POOR DOLLAR. IS THAT THE LOWEST FORM OF PERSONAL RECOGNIZANCE?

  1. The truth is starting to come out. “She has faced charges of drunk driving, driving without a valid license and driving without insurance. Other past criminal charges included assault causing bodily injury, property theft and drug possession.” “Hutchings has a history of driving offenses and other arrests dating back two decades.” Betting some sleazy lawyer and judge will let her go with a slap on the wrist.

  2. Was the suspect located at the same Northeast Dyer hotel, Super Lodge, Isaac Dorfman the Super Stabber? And will the inebriated lady play the mental illness card as well?

    1. Good questions. How about, What? The culprit is not a white supremacist racist pig running down a poor Hispanic fireman? Who knew that other races commit heinous crimes in El Paso Strong? Amazing.

      1. Hit & Run & haul azz home doesn’t match my definition of heinous. My definition of’heinous crime’ is casually dining at a McDonald’s prior to attacking targeted Hispanics. McDonald’s Terrorist Dorfman & Crusius have Mickey D’s in common

  3. No mention of race but obviously she looks black. El Paso has diversity and equal opportunity when it comes to crimes. The perp is not always a white person or leftist media narrative white supremacist/national.

    1. No mention about her being black? Do they need to? Really? Of course the person is not a white supremacist/national. Just look as to who shot 5 people in Milwaukee? He doesn’t fit your profile on white people at all. Imagine that.
