Fleeing DUI suspect: 'I had the runs, I had to go'

Barnard W. Cato III fled the scene of an accident after his car crashed into another vehicle and newspaper boxes at about 7:15 a.m. on Tuesday, reports The Gainesville Sun. The 29-year-old Gainesville man ran towards a nearby Walmart where he was found within minutes. He declined to give a breathalyzer test and allegedly told Gainesville cops “I didn’t realize I hit somebody...I had the runs, I had to go.” He went directly to jail.
