Driving while intoxicated:

Police arrested a David Nash, 20, for drunken driving following a one-vehicle roll-over accident at 11:53 p.m. Thursday near Threadneedle Street. When police responded to the accident, Nash allegedly fled the scene, causing a foot-chase with the police. The police eventually caught Nash and charged him with drunken driving, leaving the scene of an accident, domestic violence assault and misdemeanor assault. Police were unavailable to explain the additional assault charges by the Empire's mid-day deadline.

The two passengers in the vehicle were taken to Bartlett Regional Hospital, treated for their injuries and released, police said.

Nash was lodged at the Lemon Creek Correctional Center and held without bail.
