JAMESTOWN – A Jamestown man was arrested over the weekend for DWI after reportedly striking a vehicle and a building early Saturday.
City police say 18 year-old Dale Linkous was seen driving a truck around 3:30 a.m. Saturday in the area of Barrett and Newland Avenues when it went off the road and got stuck on a curb. When officers approached, Linkous allegedly revved the engine and the truck lurched forward across the road, went into a yard, and struck a home on Newland Ave.
An investigation found Linkous to be highly intoxicated and in possession of cocaine and marijuana. He was also believed to be involved in two hit-and-run accidents with vehicles parked on the road.
Linkous faces numerous charges and was sent to the city jail to await arraignment.
