It might be splitting hairs, but there is a difference between "flight" and "not remaining on scene".
generally means an attempt to avoid capture, or avoid association with an event.
It's pretty difficult to use "not remaining on scene" as evidence of guilt when you've called the police to report the incident, identified yourself and indicated that you'll be waiting for officers to arrive, having taken refuge at a diner two blocks away.
