Multiple complaints of a man crashing into vehicles and fleeing the scene led police to a truck that had crashed into a lamp post, causing it to fall onto an adjacent home.

The driver was being restrained by a resident of the neighbourhood when police arrived on scene, and the man was arrested without incident, according to the release.

All told, the man had driven into six different cars before finally being stopped by the lamp post.

He is now facing numerous charges including impaired operation of a motor vehicle.

Those in the area who may suspect that they had their property damaged by the incident are asked to file a report with their detachments at either the downtown location of 4602 51 Avenue, Red Deer or the north detachment at 6592 58th Avenue.
