Firefighter in DUI That Sent Teen to Hospital Out on House Arrest


Lt. Christopher Rayphand was released on a $5,000 personal recognizance bond Monday. 

Guam – The firefighter who’s accused of striking a teenager while driving under the influence was released yesterday on house arrest.

Lt. Chris Rayphand, who’s assigned to the Dededo Fire Station was released on a $5,000 personal recognizance bond. 

He’s accused of striking a 16-year-old girl who was crossing the street along Route 16 near Shell gas station Saturday around 10:40 pm. 

Police say Lt. Rayphand failed his field sobriety test and smelled of alcohol.

The victim is at the Guam Regional Medical City. Her condition is unknown as the hospital is unable to release information without parental consent because she is a minor. 


  1. I’m not taking sides on this issue but we may have a case where this man is guilty of DUI but not guilty of hitting this girl IF she dashed out into traffic. We’ll see where the investigation goes from here. I hope she recovers.
