(COLUMBUS) - A Columbus man was arrested after police say he crashed his car into a tree and then fled the scene.

Columbus Police say 42-year-old Michael Burton tested at more than four times over the legal limit with a blood alcohol content of .364 percent.

Police say Burton's companion, 43-year-old Glenda Dixon, said she had been driving at the time of the crash, which occurred in the 700 block of Maple Street at around 6 p.m. Wednesday, but witnesses identified Burton as the driver.

Officers say Burton failed several field sobriety tests.

He was arrested and taken to the Bartholomew County Jail on a preliminary charge of operating a vehicle while intoxicated and leaving the scene of an accident.

Dixon was arrested on a charge of false informing.
