JOELTON, Tenn. (WTVF) — A man crashed not one, but two cars Sunday morning on a residential street in Joelton.

The suspected drunk driver crashed his sedan on the 6500-block of Old Clarksville Pike around 3 a.m. He was stuck in his car until first responders arrived. After they pulled him out, he ran off, hopped in a fire support vehicle and drove away.

As he drove toward Clarksville Highway, he realized he didn't know how to turn off the emergency sirens in the pickup truck. When he saw police cars driving towards him, he turned back down the street. He ultimately crashed the truck in a front lawn.

Police coaxed him out of the car and then tackled him to the ground. He was arrested.

This is a developing story.
