Man Flees Police on Foot

Posted: Updated:

Yakima, WA - Around 3:30 AM, police were checking on a car stopped in the middle of the road on Peach Street between Second and Third Avenue.  When an officer went to check on the car, the man in the driver's seat opened his door and ran.  He lost police at first running through a couple of yards...but eventually they found him hiding underneath a car on Second Avenue. They're not sure why he fled, but they do suepect that he was drunk.  Police say that they're charging with physical control of a vehicle while intoxicated.  Because he wasn't actually driving the car, he won't be charged with a dui.
