Police: Suspect was intoxicated, tried to flee from police

MADISON, Wis. - A Madison man is facing a series of tentative charges after police say he was driving the wrong way on the 100 block of Wilson Street early Monday morning.

Frank Hernandez Quinoes, 22 of Madison, was driving the wrong way on Wilson Street around 1a.m. when an officer heard the horn of another oncoming car while on patrol, according to a report from Madison police.

According to the report, an intoxicated Quinoes swerved out of the way and stuck his arm out the window, flashing the other driver his middle finger.

Police said the officer started to chase Quinoes, but stopped after Quinoes ran several red lights. According to the release, he was driving at speeds between 65 and 75 mph.

He then pulled over on Davidson Street, got out of his car and started running, police said.

A different officer was able to find and tackle Quinoes on the 3900 block of Dempsey Raod.  

Quinoes was tentatively charged with operating while intoxicated, fleeing an officer while on a probation hold, driving the wrong way on a one-way and operating after revocation.
