A 19-year-old allegedly drunken driver fled his vehicle and hid from police in an apartment before being arrested in Newark on Tuesday afternoon, police said. Henry Kreyger was arrested on suspicion of resisting arrest and driving under the influence. At 5:48 p.m., Newark police were notified by an off-duty CHP officer of a possible intoxicated driver.
A Newark police officer responded and located a vehicle being driven erratically. When the officer attempted to initiate a traffic stop, Kreyger went into a nearby apartment in the 36800 block of Cherry Street, police said. Kreyger eventually came out of the home at the officer’s command but was not immediately compliant with the officer’s instructions. He was booked at Santa Rita Jail, according to police.
