A 23-year-old Juneau man faces six charges related to driving while intoxicated and causing a traffic accident last night (Thursday) in the Mendenhall Valley.
At about 8 p.m. Juneau Police received a report of a collision at the intersection of Loop Road and Egan Drive. The caller said one of the vehicles ran a red light causing the crash, and then fled the scene.
About five minutes later, officers stopped a vehicle being driven by Jonathan Cashen in the Lemon Creek Area. He was arrested for driving while intoxicated, Refusal to Submit to a Chemical Test, Leaving the Scene of an Accident, and three counts of Reckless Endangerment.
According to a JPD release, Cashen was lodged at the Lemon Creek Correctional Center.
