A man could be facing serious charges after an apparently alcohol-fuelled smash in Launceston early on Sunday. 

Police arrested the male, aged in his mid to early 20s, after his car ploughed through signage into a power pole on Invermay Road.

A witness says the "highly intoxicated" man was attempting to flee and even warned passers by not to call police, but he was eventually taken into custody.
