LAFAYETTE, Ind. — A driver of a black Chevy Tahoe went on a hit-and-run spree Wednesday before driving through a garage and into a ditch, Lafayette police said.

After police sorted through three crash scenes, they arrested Neil Tribbett, 35, of Lafayette, on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. He was released on his own recognizance, Lafayette police said.

Police suspect Tribbett was driving the Tahoe, and he first hit a car at 18th and Bridgewater streets about 12:15 p.m. Wednesday, according to police. That victim did not want to file a complaint, but it didn't matter, police said. Tribbett didn't stop sand was headed to his second hit-and-skip for the day.

Then he hit three cars in the area of 14th and Adams streets, sending one driver to the hospital, police said.

Tribbett then drove through a garage at 1010 Digby St., and ended his mayhem near Valley Street and Mary Hill Road, where he drove the Tahoe into the ditch about 12:50 p.m. Wednesday, police said.
