YPD/Drunk Driver On the Run Caught
A Yarmouthport man was arrested and charged with O.U.I. 3rd offense last Saturday afternoon after nearly striking a Yarmouth police cruiser and running a red light.
The incident happened at the intersection of Buck Island and Higgins-Crowell roads when 34 year old Joshua Brooks drove his truck directly at a police cruiser.
At his arraignment in Barnstable District Court Monday, Brooks did not complete the process and walked out of the court.
Thursday morning around 10 o’clock, Yarmouth Police located Brooks hiding in a basement of a Yarmouthport home.
He was charged with a default warrant for O.U.I. and returned to court.
