A Madison man was eventually arrested Saturday night after police found his vehicle partially submerged in a creek on the near east side, officials said.
Madison police officers were sent to reports of a vehicle crash that ended with the vehicle going off the roadway and into Starkweather Creek around 10 p.m., according to a release.
When officers arrived they found the vehicle partially submerged in water but no driver, police said.
The vehicle was registered to an address on Madison?s southeast side, and officers eventually made contact with Juan A. Sabino-Severiano, 18, in the area of Vernon Avenue, according to the release.
Sabino-Severiano resisted officers? attempts to handcuff him and take him into custody, but he was eventually arrested on tentative charges of resisting an officer and first-offense operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, police said.
