Blotter: Report: Motorist evades police in neighborhood

Comments () A Text Size

On Saturday, a motorist tried to evade a police officer by driving through a residential neighborhood after the officer attempted to pull him over on Interstate 35E, according to a police report.

The officer observed the man driving erratically on I-35E near the Pennsylvania Street exit at about 11:30 p.m., the report stated. The officer activated his emergency lights and siren to pull the vehicle over, but the driver fled.

The officer pursued the vehicle, which was exceeding the speed limit, into a residential area in Corinth, according to the police report.

The pursuit ended when the driver stopped in the driveway of a residence. The man allegedly tried to rush inside the house but was detained by police.

An officer arrested the man on charges of driving while intoxicated and evading arrest with a vehicle. The man refused to submit to a blood test, so a search warrant was obtained and a blood specimen was taken.
