A 41-year-old Prescott man is accused of trying to run over several women.
Prescott police say officers arrested John M. Carlson after four Prescott-women women taking photos in a park-like area and another witness reported that Carlson tried unsuccessfully several times to run over the women Sunday.
The women said Carlson drove up an embankment toward one woman trying to get away and backed up at high speed toward two other women.
The car belonging to Carlson's father eventually got stuck on a utility pole's guide wire.
The women told police they didn't know Carlson.
Police say Carlson was uncooperative and wouldn't talk about the incident. He faces charges of driving under the influence, endangerment, criminal damage and interfering with judicial proceedings.
It's not known if Carlson has a lawyer.
