Man Arrested After Midnight Crash In Pond

A Madison County man was arrested in Jefferson County after deputies said he drove his car into a pond.

The Jefferson County Sheriff?s Office said Tyron Dee Brown, 28, ran from his car after driving it into a settling pond early Tuesday morning. One resident heard the crash, and another at 4000 East reported a man in wet clothing pounding on a door at 12:30 a.m.

According to the sheriff?s office, Brown was headed north on 3900 East, ran the stop sign on Yellowstone Highway, hit the railroad track and landed midway in the pond.

The totaled car was found on the bottom of the pond. The railroad track was knocked off center with the spikes completely pulled out. The wire fencing around the pond was also damaged, the sheriff?s office said.

Brown is being held at the Jefferson County Jail and is charged with driving under the influence, obstructing or resisting an officer, leaving the scene of an accident, and disturbing the peace.

Jefferson County Search and Rescue Dive Team, Rigby QRU, Tech Rescue and Idaho Falls Ambulance also responded to the scene.
