Follow Daily Journal:



A Greenwood man was arrested Tuesday after a brief pursuit with police.

Rene Quinones Orozco, 43, 830 Yellowwood Drive, was arrested on charges of resisting law enforcement with a vehicle and operating while intoxicated with a prior conviction.

A Johnson County police officer tried to stop Orozco near Sugar Grove Shoppes after witnessing his vehicle cross the center line, but the vehicle did not stop, according to a Johnson County Sheriff’s Office report.

Orozco drove to his home before stopping, the report said. A test showed he had a blood-alcohol content of .21 percent, more than twice the legal limit to be considered too intoxicated to drive, the report said.

Orozco was arrested and was being held without bond at the Johnson County Jail.
