Police tell ABC 36 News the alleged driver of a truck that struck a Jessamine County constable's home Thursday morning has been arrested.

Jason P. Woodward, of 1355 Bethany Road, was arrested and charged with first-degree criminal mischief, leaving the scene of an accident and operating on a suspended license. 

According to a release by the Jessamine County Sherriff's Office, Woodward drove into 217 Whispering Brook Drive, the home of constable Bobby G. Wombles, and then fled the scene.

The incident was recorded on video by Wombles' home security camera and police say it was a key element in detailing the make of the vehicle.

At approximately 2 p.m. Thursday, a caller to 911 reported seeing a vehicle matching the general description from the incident.

The caller said the back glass of the pickup truck was gone, the front end was damaged, and the truck was in the Tractor Supply parking lot. 

Officers from Nicholasville Police Department and Jessamine County Sheriff's office located the vehicle, which police say was being driven by Woodward.

According to the report, Woodard admitted to operating the vehicle that struck the constable's home.
