A 45-year-old Council Bluffs, Iowa, man was arrested Monday evening after he ran from officers following an accident on Kansas Highway 68.
Master Deputy Jerrod Fredricks, a Franklin County Sheriff’s spokesman, said that bout 6:20 p.m. William R. Rowe was driving east near Arkansas Road, about 10 miles west of Ottawa, when he fell asleep. The vehicle rolled and landed on its wheels. Rowe continued to drive, and sheriff’s officers later tried to stop the vehicle near Eisenhower Road on the northwestern edge of Ottawa.
Rowe did not immediately stop, and once he did, Fredricks said, he ran from the vehicle.
“The driver was then apprehended after a short foot pursuit and taken into custody,” Fredricks said.
He was booked into jail on charges of DUI, fleeing or eluding law enforcement, leaving the scene of a property damage accident and failing to report an accident.
