Police in Gainesville, Florida, said a man told them he fled the scene of an accident and went to a Walmart because he “had the runs.” Barnard Cato III was arrested and charged with DUI, hit and run, and a felony count of leaving the scene of an accident involving injury after he struck another occupied vehicle and a few newspaper boxes around 7:15 a.m. Tuesday. Police found Cato a few minutes later at a Walmart, where he told officers he didn’t realize he had hit the other vehicle and he “pulled into the next stop. ... I had the runs, I had to go,” he said. Officers said Cato had a “strong odor of alcohol emanating from his breath and clothing” and his eyes were “bloodshot and watery.” Cato declined to submit to a breathalyzer test.
