Driver apprehended by NPD after he flees on foot.


A 39-year-old Napa man was arrested this week after he allegedly drove his car into a school building, ruptured a gas line and fled the scene on foot.

Scott Hagan was apprended by Napa police after the incident that began at 6:40 p.m. Monday and ended near on the campus of Salvador Elementary School.

Police said the incident began when dispatch broadcasted a report of a possible DUI driver in the area of Highway 29 and Trower Avemue at 6:40 p.m. Monday.

The suspected vehicle was described as a dark four-door and similar to a Honda.

Within minutes of the broadcast, dispatch received an emergency call reporting a Honda just drove into a building on the campus of Salvador Elementary School and ruptured a gas line.

Officers arrived on scene and were told by witnesses that the driver of the Honda fled north through the school grounds. Officers immediately secured the perimeter and located the male suspect.

The suspect was detained and identified as Scott Hagan, 39 of Napa. Hagan was identified by witnesses on scene as the driver of the Honda.

There were several people on campus for a Scout meeting during the incident and were asked to shelter in place by the Napa Fire Department while the gas leak was contained and later shut off.

Hagan was later transported to the Napa County Jail where he was booked for suspected DUI and hit and run.
