A Columbus man drove away from a traffic stop late last month, according to the New Albany Police Department.

The 24-year-old man was stopped by an officer for a traffic violation at 1:36 p.m. Oct. 27 at Johnstown Road and Forest Drive.

The officer stopped pursuing the man but he didn't get away -- police already knew his identity from the traffic stop and contacted him later, said officer Joe Rehnert.

The man turned himself in, Rehnert said.
