He then fled the scene on foot and was found walking two hours later about two miles north of the crash scene.
Cooper was arrested without incident.
He is charged with leaving the scene of an accident, obstructing a police officer, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana, and unauthorized use of a vehicle.
Cooper is in custody at the Keith County Jail.
