LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - A Longview man crashes his car into a community center leaving significant damage. Now, the building is closed. It happened in the 500 block of South Center Street in Longview, at the Stamper Park Community Resource Center.

Police say Arthur Lee Taylor, III crashed into the building after a fight at Whataburger and then took off, nearly hitting several officers.

The community center is now boarded up. City officials hope Taylor's insurance will cover the damage.

Taylor is now charged with assault on an officer, evading arrest, and failure to identify as a fugitive.
