MADISONVILLE-He was told to slow down, but he stopped, then he went on, then he was arrested.

Madisonville Police Detective Daniel Dockery said it was just before 8 p.m. Saturday when he was nearly struck by a car while attempting to cross the road. Dockery said he made a hand motion for the driver to slow down, but the driver came to a complete stop.

Dockery said the driver rolled down his window, gave him a look of confusion, then drove on. Dockery said he saw the driver wasn't wearing a seatbelt and he got into his own car to follow.

The officer followed the car down Monroe Street and onto Veal Heights where the driver almost drove into a ditch.
