According to Lt. Brandon Wright, three vehicles were involved in an accident Wednesday, November 6th just after 6:00 pm in the 500 block of W 27th. A vehicle rear ended another stopped at the light, pushing it into the car in front of it. The first had to be towed from the scene, and emergency personnel were directing traffic during the cleanup.
While officers were directing traffic around the accident scene, a vehicle approached and failed to follow their directions. Officers made contact with the driver, 19 year old William Staab, of Hays. Staab appeared to be under the influence, but refused to exit the vehicle and resisted officers as they attempted to remove him.
Staab was ultimately arrested for DUI, Possession of Marijuana, Possession and Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer.
