    Oakland's new police chief Anne Kirkpatrick.

    New Oakland police Chief Anne Kirkpatrick was involved in a fender bender near police headquarters on Friday, which was the end of her first week on the job, police said Tuesday.

    Kirkpatrick backed a patrol car into an unoccupied parked scooter in the 800 block of Broadway just after 7:30 a.m. Friday, police spokesman officer Marco Marquez said.

    There was minor damage to the scooter but there weren't any injuries, Marquez said.

    "A report was taken, the chief gave a statement and went through the traffic investigation process as would any city employee," Marquez said.
