By Greg Peppers

Montgomery County police have made an arrest following this morning's fatal hit-and-run in Dupont Circle.

County police say 30-year-old Jorida Davidson of Friendship Heights, Md., has been charged with driving under the influence and was later released. They say they didn't have the authority to hold Davidson since charges have yet to be filed in the District related to the hit-and-run.

Early this morning, a 24-year-old woman identified as Kiela Marie Ryan of Columbia, Md., was struck and killed by a black Lexus SUV in Dupont Circle. The vehicle had Maryland tags. Police say the tags on Davidson's car do match those of the vehicle suspected in the hit-and-run.

D.C. police have impounded the Lexus and are pursuing a warrant in the case, but they would not say if the warrant is for Davidson's arrest.
