The driver took off on foot and went into a nearby trailer. He was taken into custody shortly afterward.

The man faces charges of OWI 1st offense, fleeing or eluding a traffic officer, failure to stop at a flashing red light, speeding and failure to stop at a stop sign. He was taken into custody on a probation hold.
