Man in jail after running from accident scene

Posted: Updated:


One man is in jail after police say he caused an accident and ran from the scene. 

Police responded to an accident at Heidelbach and Maryland just after noon on Wednesday.  

Officers on scene tell 14 News that the driver of the silver car hit a parked car and the driver and the passenger were both outside the car. When police arrived, they ran.  

Police say they caught up with the driver, Katawn Tapp, around the corner. Authorities say Tapp was wanted for failing to register as a sex offender. He was also featured on our Crimestoppers most wanted Tuesday night on 14 News.

Officers suspect the man had swallowed something before he was handcuffed and he was taken to the hospital for treatment.
