College Station police have arrested a man accused of stealing a pickup truck and then fleeing the scene of a crash with another vehicle.

Scott Anthony Pettit, 33, of Gause was found hiding Wednesday evening hiding out near Brison Park before he was taken into custody.

A spokesman for the police department said Pettit is being charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and additional charges are likely.

After he was taken into custody on West Dexter Drive, police took him to a hospital for treatment due to his level of intoxication on something other than alcohol.

Police say Pettit stole a pickup truck around 5:15 p.m. from Oney Hervey Drive, crashed into another vehicle near Holleman Drive and Eleanor Street, and was followed by the hit-and-run victim to the area of Brison Park where he abandoned the vehicle.

Pettit has been arrested 21 times in Brazos County since 2009, according to online jail records.
