DANBURY, Conn. — A 36-year-old Waterbury man was arrested on multiple charges after he drove away from a domestic disturbance in Danbury, crashed his car in Bethel and fled, Danbury police said. 

Officers were called at 9:30 p.m. Sunday, April 23, to a home on Mountain Road about a domestic disturbance, police said in a statement. 

As officers were leaving the scene, the suspect drove past them on Mountainville Road, police said. 

Officers attempted to stop the suspect, later identified as Jemar King, 36, of Waterbury, police said. 

King disobeyed the officers and continued to pass other cars as he drove off, police said. Officers did not attempt to pursue King, police said.

King then crashed his vehicle on Reservoir Street in Bethel and fled on foot, police said. Officers were unable to locate King that night, police said. 

Danbury officers applied for a warrant for King's arrest, and it was granted by Danbury Superior Court.

On Monday, King turned himself in at the Danbury Police Department on the arrest warrant. 

King was charged with disobeying signal of an officer, improper passing/safe distance/cutting in, third-degree burglary, third-degree stalking and disorderly conduct. He was held on $10,000 cash bond.

The Bethel Police Department is investigating the motor vehicle accident.
