MADISON, Wis. -

A man who drove his van at 80 mph on East Washington Avenue and refused to stop for police crashed after turning into a cul-de-sac, according to a release from Madison police.

An officer attempted to stop the van driven by Antonio R. Gentry, 32, late Saturday night, and estimated the van was going about 80 mph in a 35 mph zone.

Police said the van turned from Portage Road onto Village Lane and crashed into a wrought-iron arbor between two homes when the road ended.

Gentry ran and was tackled while trying to climb a 7-foot fence, police said.

Gentry was arrested on suspicion of fleeing an officer, criminal damage to property, resisting an officer and on a probation hold. He was cited on suspicion of operating after revocation, imprudent speed and having no insurance.
