A Spotsylvania man was jailed after recklessly crashing into multiple objects and attempting to hide from deputies.

On September 11, at 12:22 a.m. deputies responded to Fagan Drive for multiple calls of a dark sedan striking multiple objects. It was advised the vehicle ended up in someone’s yard after hitting the median and a mailbox. When deputies arrived, they observed multiple damages in the area. Deputy T.A. Vasquez noticed a male attempting to hide in the backyard of the residence. The male, Corey Cook, 31, of Spotsylvania, had an interesting account for what happened.

Cook advised someone must have taken his vehicle, crashed it, then returned it to the same residence all while he was using the bathroom in the backyard. A witness later countered this statement. The witness advised Cook dropped them off at the residence before crashing the vehicle down the street. Cook then drove back to the residence, hitting a mailbox along the way, and ended up in the bushes.
As Deputy Vasquez was investigating the scene, dispatch noted Cook had an outstanding warrant out of Westmoreland County. Cook was placed under arrest and determined to be the driver of the vehicle. An inventory search was conducted on the vehicle, during which a suspected controlled substance was located.

Cook was charged with two counts of hit and run, driving while revoked, and possession of a controlled substance. He was also served on his Capias warrant out of Westmoreland County. Cook was held at Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond.
