A Little Rock man at first wouldn't pull over for police and then stopped, crawled into the backseat and claimed he wasn't the driver, according to a Little Rock Police Department arrest report.

Philip Baca, 26, was booked into the Pulaski County jail on misdemeanor charges including speeding, driving with a suspended license, driving while intoxicated and failure to yield to an emergency vehicle.

Police say it happened about 1 a.m. Friday after a Little Rock officer tried to pull Baca over for going 83 mph in a 60 mph zone on Interstate 630.

According to the report, Baca continued driving from I-630 and Broadway Street to Clinton Presidential Library, where he "then crawled from [the] driver seat into the backseat and claimed not to be the driver."

The report noted Baca had a "strong odor of intoxicants, slurred speech and bloodshot eyes" and that he refused to take intoxication tests.

He remained in jail Friday morning with bail not yet set. An April 1 court date is set.

Oh yeah...that Jesus feller that some folks say is along for the ride. Guess Phillip wanted Jesus to drive him home and talk to the occifers who had pulled the car over.
