MIDLAND - Police say they have made an arrest in connection with another hit and run from Friday night, but they're not sure if they arrested the driver accused of hitting a telephone poll and two parked cars.

The man wouldn't they picked up that night wouldn't give police his name.

He's charged with failure to ID.

They're also looking into DWI and hit and run charges.

One sergeant told NewsWest 9, hit and runs like this are a problem on the weekend, because drunk drivers are trying to avoid a DWI charge after a crash.
