Arizona man arrested for crashing into a radar van while drunk

Posted: Updated:

Tucson police say 25-year-old Matthew Jones is being held on suspicion of felony criminal damage and driving under the influence.

He was arrested after the New Year's Day accident in the midtown area.

Police say Jones' vehicle veered off the road and struck the radar van.

American Traffic Solutions operates the vans. A company employee was inside the vehicle when the crash occurred, but escaped injury.

The Arizona Daily Star (http://bit.ly/YTYnjU) reports that Jones and his passenger also weren't injured.

Police didn't immediately know Wednesday whether Jones had a lawyer yet for his case.
