Longmont police arrested a man on Wednesday they allege crashed into numerous cars before striking a house and fighting with an officer who responded to the scene.

Sgt. Paul Campbell said the 46-year-old man, whose name was not being released on Wednesday night, faces numerous charges, and the case remains under investigation.

“We believe he was intoxicated and there were several crashes attributed to his poor handling of his motor vehicle,” Campbell said.

He said that about 5 p.m., the man’s vehicle struck a vehicle near Second Avenue and Pratt Street, another in the 200 block of Terry Street and two more near Terry Street and Third Avenue before driving into a yard and striking a house at the intersection.

He added that the man struggled with an officer who responded to the scene.

“A citizen came to her assistance as she was taking him into custody,” Campbell said. “The struggle continued and she deployed a Taser, which subdued him.”

He said no one was injured in the incident, but a large number of officers responded to the area because of the struggle involving the officer.
