Police arrest driver after car crashes into garage

Madison police arrested a 21-year-old man Saturday after a car crashed into a home on the city’s north side.

Police said witnesses saw two cars engaged in a road rage incident in the area of Sherman and Aberg Avenues Saturday morning.

Then, just after 8 a.m., a car crashed into a garage on the 1800 block of Sheridan Street.

The driver had fled, but police caught Deonte Thompson a short time later.

Police said Thompson faces a long list of charges, including operating while intoxicated, hit and run, and reckless driving.

Police said the crash caused a minor gas leak, which Madison Gas and Electric handled without any incident.

No one was home at the time of the crash.
