Atlanta Police said the suspect, 22-year-old Sedrick Scott, started a police chase that ended when he hit a speed bump on Holmes Street NW. The car apparently became airborne and hit six cars and a house before flipping and crashing in the home's front yard.

Police said Scott tried to run after the crash, but was caught and taken to jail.

No one inside the house was injured.

Scott faces a number of felony charges, including obstruction, criminal property damage, theft by receiving, DUI and fleeing police.

It is not his first arrest in Fulton County. See some of Scott's past mug shots.
