Man Arrested for Stealing Car and Crashing in Parkersburg

A car stolen right out of a Parkersburg home's driveway, Tuesday night. Police make an arrest.

Just minutes after the stolen car was reported, police say a crash was reported near Ridgeway Avenue. Police say the driver had ran from the scene and they found several objects hit by the car.

Investigators then found the same car to be the one reported stolen.

Police then found a man matching a witness's description on 10th Avenue, trying to get into a home.

The officer says the suspect, now identified as George Fonner, knocked on the door then went in. The officer followed and ultimately tased Fonner when he resisted arrest.

Fonner is charged with stealing the car, burglary, and multiple other charges expected to come.

He remains in jail after failing to post his $150,000 bond
