Man arrested after nearly hitting emergency personnel with his car

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Officers in Cape Girardeau say they've arrested a man after he drove recklessly near emergency personnel, abandoned his car, and came back to the police station asking for his car back.

Officers and medical personnel were working a crash at William and Silver Springs last Thursday when an approaching vehicle almost struck emergency personnel.

The man drove away but the vehicle was found unoccupied a short time later in the 400 block of Silver Springs.

The vehicle had struck a sign and the driver ran away.

Officials say he then showed up at the police station Tuesday wanting his vehicle back, where he was arrested.

Charges are still pending.
