Police: Man intentionally crashed into tow truck during repossession

A Jamestown man was arrested Tuesday on several charges stemming from an incident that began with him crashing his pickup truck into a tow truck during an attempted repossession and ended with police finding the man hiding in a crawl space, according to the Jamestown Police Department.

Christopher E. Dellahoy, 30, is facing nine charges, including reckless endangerment, harrassment and resisting arrest. He was also arrested on outstanding warrants out of the Jamestown Police Department.

Officers were called to Newton Avenue at 11:30 p.m. Tuesday for a reported fight. When officers arrived, they found that Dellahoy had intentionally crashed his Ford F-150 pickup truck into the back of a tow truck attempting to repossess Dellahoy's truck.

Officers said Dellahoy reportedly then harassed the tow truck driver before fleeing into a nearby house. Officers said they found Dellahoy hiding in a crawl space where he became belligerent and failed to comply with officers' commands.

Dellahoy was transported to Jamestown City Jail, where police said he was found to have methamphetamine.

Dellahoy was charged with charges of second-degree harassment, third- and fourth-degree criminal mischief, two counts of second-degree reckless endangerment, resisting arrest, second-degree obstructing governmental administration, second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and multiple other traffic infractions.
