(WASHINGTON) - Police arrested four people late Friday night after a driver fled the scene of an accident at the Circle K and lead Washington and Daviess County police on a chase on US 50.

It all started just before 11 p.m. when Washington Police were told an older model S-10 had left an accident at Circle K West. Officers saw the truck on US 50 and attempted a stop but 38-year-old Joshua Bell took off north on Highway 257, then East on East National Highway.

Police arrested 38-year-old Bell of Washington after he was finally stopped near the roundabout on Gateway Drive.

Bell is facing charges of resisting law enforcement in a vehicle, operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated endangering a person and leaving the scene of a property damage accident.

During the investigation involving Bell, officers report they saw 31-year old Joshua Arnold, of Washington, in a passing vehicle. Knowing he was wanted on a warrant, he was stopped and a further investigation turned up meth and marijuana in Arnold's vehicle.

Police say Arnold was wanted on a Daviess County felony warrant for dissemination of harmful material to a minor.

During Arnold's arrest, officers also arrested his two passengers, 42-year-old Deanne Belcher on a charge of possession of meth and 29-year-old Whitney Abbott on a charge of possession of meth and marijuana.
