A Cypress man was arrested Monday afternoon on suspicion of one felony count of hit-and-run and for resisting arrest and driving without a license.
Reportedly Haitham Ebrahim aged 18, fled the scene of one crash and got into another crash when he hit a brick wall while fleeing the first crash.
Cypress police responded to a car crash call that came in at 3:20 pm. Arrival upon the scene of the accident at the corner of Knott and Johnathan avenue revealed an empty Toyota Corolla with the stereo on. The corolla had crashed into a brick wall. According to reports, Ebrahim had hit an SUV and was fleeing the scene of that accident just prior to crashing into the brick wall.
Several witnesses at the scene described Ebrahim and told police that he and several other people had run into a nearby apartment complex. Police reports state that they were able to arrest Ebrahim after a short foot chase when they had found him matching witness descriptions.
According to reports, Ebrahim was booked into the Cypress city jail and was then held in the Orange County Jail on $20,000 bail.
