A 45-year-old Southside man was arrested at 9:50 p.m. Sunday on charges of driving under the influence, fleeing police, running a red light and having no registration after he failed to stop in the 8500 block of Baymeadows Road for a minor equipment problem, police said.

Police said an officer saw that he had a headlight out at 9:14 p.m. and tried to stop the car at Baymeadows Road and Old Kings Road South, but the driver sped off down Baymeadows Way.

Police said the driver circled a hotel before heading toward Bayberry Road and running a red light. With more police cars in pursuit with lights and sirens on, the car "continued to attempt to elude me" as it turned in and out of various streets, the lead officer's report said.

Police deployed Stop Sticks on Baymeadows Road and deflated all four of the car's tires, but the driver continued until the car ground to a halt back on Baymeadows Way, police said.

Following are the crimes and other incidents reported recently on the Southside, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office:
