A Delaware man is under arrest after, police say, he was involved in two vehicle crashes while under the influence.

Investigators say 42-year-old Billy J. England of Felton struck a car at a stop sign at the intersection of Millchop Lane and Peachtree Run in Magnolia just before 5:00 p.m. on Thursday.

After the crash, police say England fled the scene in his pickup truck.

The driver of the car that was hit gave police a description of the striking vehicle and police located it in the nearby neighborhood of Meadowbrook Acres.

An officer approached the damaged pickup and that's when, police say, England put the truck in reverse and rammed the police cruiser.

England was then arrested and charged with his 5th DUI offense and other charges.
