An Evansville man was arrested on Wednesday after a crash involving an Evansville Police Department vehicle.
EPD says an officer was in the middle of a traffic stop on Wednesday night when he heard a loud "pop" behind him and saw debris fall from his patrol vehicle.
Police say a red pickup truck being driven by 27-year-old Jamey Malvern sped away with the officer catching up to him at Franklin and Weinbach.
EPD says that Malvern admitted to being under the influence and leaving the scene of the crash.
He's being held in the Vanderburgh County Jail on charges of Resisting Law Enforcement, Leaving the Scene of a Crash, and Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated.
