Arthur W. Nebe Arrested

EAST GREENBUSH — A town man was arrested for a host of vehicle and traffic violations after smashing into two cars and fleeing from police Wednesday.

Police first received several 911 calls about an erratic driver in the parking lot of the Wal-Mart Supercenter on Route 4 followed several minutes later by reports of the same car crashing into another vehicle some two miles away and leaving the scene of the accident.

The car was later spotted in a line of traffic on Routes 9 and 20. When police tried to stop Arthur W. Nebe, 44, of 43 Cooper Ave., he threw his car in reverse, smashed into the car behind him and sped off. Police stopped his vehicle on Hays Road about three miles away.

A 38-year-old male passenger in one vehicle struck by Nebe was transported to Albany Memorial Hospital with unspecified injuries. A 25-year-old female and a 1-year-old infant in the same car, were not injured.

In the other vehicle, two women reported that they were not injured, when Nebe crashed into their car in the vicinity of Stewart’s on Route 4.

In addition to reckless driving, Nebe is charged with DWI, vehicle assault, unlawfully fleeing the police and numerous other vehicle and traffic charges.

Nebe was arraigned in East Greenbush Town Court.
