Man Who Ran After Crash Arrested For 18th Time Since 1992

A Redding Police K-9 tracked down a man accused of running from a traffic collision Wednesday morning. The solo vehicle crash was reported at 10:40AM on South Bonnyview at Indianwood. Officers spoke with the driver, 63-year-old Michael Vandolah, but while they were investigating the crash, they say Vandolah ran away toward the River Bend Estates. After trying unsuccessfully to escape through back yards, he apparently ran into the golf course, where Gunner the K-9 eventually found him hiding in some thick brush next to a water hazard. Vandolah has a history of running from the police and is on probation for drug offenses. He also had an active warrant. Wednesday’s arrest was the 18th for him since 1992.
