Cary, N.C. — Wake County sheriff's deputies arrested a man early Saturday after they say he failed to stop at a DWI checkpoint, crashed his van and then jumped out and tried to run.
Thomas Earl McLean, 33, was taken to a nearby hospital for evaluation of unknown injuries, according to Cary police.
Wake deputies say McLean refused to stop at the DWI checkpoint at Cary Towne Boulevard shortly before 2:45 a.m. and eventually crashed in the 300 block of Dry Avenue.
He was charged with fleeing and eluding arrest.
