Alleged hit-and-run leads to drunken driving arrest

Juneau police arrested a man on six separate counts after he allegedly crashed into another car and fled the scene Thursday night.

The Juneau Police Department received a report at 7:55 p.m. Thursday that a man ran a red light at the intersection of Mendenhall Loop Road and Egan Drive, crashed into another vehicle and then left without stopping, a release from the department states. About five minutes later, JPD officers stopped a vehicle that matched the description of the one that allegedly fled the scene of the accident. Police arrested the driver, 23-year-old Johnathon Cashen, for driving while intoxicated, refusing to submit to a chemical test, leaving the scene of an accident and three counts of reckless endangerment, the release states.

Police took Cashen to Lemon Creek Correctional Center.
