Johnson City Police arrested a 22-year-old Johnson City man Monday morning on charges of DUI with a child in the vehicle, felony evading arrest and two counts of reckless endangerment.

Police said they tried to stop Jordan Reece’s vehicle, but he didn’t immediately stop, and then bailed on foot. He left behind two passengers, including a 16-year-old, in the vehicle. One of the passengers had to stop the vehicle after Reece fled, officers reported.

Police found Reece, 527 Washington Ave., hiding under some trash in a dumpster about two blocks from the scene. He is being held on $25,000 bond and appeared in Sessions Court Monday morning.
