Rather than turn back onto the road, the man then drove across the corner of the sidewalk and headed west on William. Bush said the man drove across William Street toward Cottage Inn Pizza, hitting a parked car with such force it ended up with its rear wheels on the hood of the car behind it.
The man then swerved back across the road into the northbound lanes and struck another light pole, Bush said. At this point, the man decided to ditch the pickup truck and fled the area on foot.
A short time later, officers with the University of Michigan police arrested the man at Washington Street and Fifth Avenue, Bush said. He was turned over to the Ann Arbor police.
The man suffered minor injuries, so no sobriety tests were done. He was taken to the University of Michigan Hospital for a blood test and to be treated for his injuries.
