A 29-year-old Fresno man with three prior DUI convictions was arrested on charges of a fourth DUI after he allegedly struck another vehicle on Avenue 12 and fled the scene of the collision, according to the California Highway Patrol. 


Jovan Santillan-Lagunas was also charged with resisting arrest, obstructing an officer and driving with a suspended license. 


The incident happened about 1 p.m. Saturday in heavy traffic on Avenue 12 in the Madera Ranchos. Witnesses provided a description of the fleeing vehicle as a black Ford F150 pickup driven by a man in a bright orange shirt. 


Officers located Santillan-Lagunas and the vehicle in the 29400 block of Avenue 12 and when he became combative used a taser twice to take him into custody. 


No injuries were reported in the hit and run, or in the arrest. Santillan-Lagunas is being held in the Madera County jail.
