Police arrest Cunningham man on motor vehicle charges

A Cunningham man faces multiple charges after his car was found in a ditch off the 5,000 block of Marion Road.

A deputy saw the car, stopped to inspect it and saw the passenger side rear tire was flat. The car was not locked and the window was down. The car was owned by Scotty Phillips, 59, of 4587 Marion Road in Cunningham, who had a revoked license and an active warrant.

As the car was being towed, the deputy was en route to Phillips’  home when he spotted the driver in another vehicle. The deputy caught up with him and he pulled over into a church parking lot.

Phillips was involved in another incident in February when he was in a one car crash on Highway 13. Phillips was given a field sobriety test which he performed poorly. According to police reports, he smelled strongly of alcohol at the time of the current arrest.

Phillips is charged with two counts of driving on a revoked license, no proof of insurance, leaving the scene of an accident and no immediate notice of an accident and was booked into the Montgomery County Jail with a bond of $25,000.
