A 30 year old man was arrested early Friday morning after causing an accident while fleeing police. Shawn Flowers is charged with resisting law enforcement, leaving the scene of an injury accident, operating while intoxicated, disorderly conduct, and reckless driving. Authorities report just after midnight, Flowers was clocked at driving over 80 miles per hours in a 35 mile per hour zone, near Indiana 130 and 149. Police say Flowers had a blood-alcohol level nearly one-and-a-half times the legal limit, and struck a Jeep while trying to elude officers. The Times reports the driver of the jeep was not injured in the crash, but a passenger in Flower's vehicle reportedly suffered a broken ankle.
