Man arrested after crashing car into house, fleeing scene

A man was arrested after he crashed his car into the side of a house Tuesday night.

At about 10:30 p.m. a Gainesville police officer attempted to pull over a black Cadillac STS for a traffic violation said GPD Sgt. Stephen Hayes.

Hayes said instead of pulling over, the man sped up, losing control of his car and crashing it into the house at 1202 NW 4th Ave. The man crawled out of the passenger side of the car and ran north, but the officer caught him, Hayes said.

The man was carrying crack, Hayes said.
