Took off. I witnessed it and going to file my police report. But they aren't arresting them. I thought all misdemeanor s are arrestable
It can be. Mostly, it is up to the police.
Put the damage through your insurance company and let them pursue the other party to return your deductible. Criminal penalties don't really help you anyway.

It all depends on the circumstances and it is up to the police. Report the damage to your insurance company.
All you can do is provide the police with everything they need to investigate and evaluate the report. This is a crime and if there is substantial proof handed to them (make it as easy as possible for them to do their jobs) then you up the chances of something being done.
Whether or not your neighbor will be arrested on this depends on the officers and what they charge your neighbor with. If your neighbor is charged with just a traffic or ordinance violation, then chances are your neighbor will not be arrested. If you neighbor is charged with a misdemeanor, when the officer gets the complaint, the officer can either get an arrest warrant as well, or else the prosecutor can issue a summons for your neighbor to appear in court and, if the summons was served upon your neighbor and your neighbor doesn't appear in court, then a warrant could be issued for your neighbor.
