Vehicle Pursuit - Arrest

On Saturday, December 17, 2011, at approximately 1816 hours, Ptlm. Lehman of the Martinsburg PD attempted to stop a vehicle for reckless driving and eluding Police.  The vehicle fled from Ptlm. Lehman on State Circle and then west on Apple Harvest Drive.  At this point, the pursuit was terminated due to high traffic along Apple Harvest Drive.  Ptlm. Barrett located the suspect vehicle a short time later on Apple Harvest Drive in the area of Foxcroft Ave and attempted to stop the vehicle.  The vehicle fled again this time north on I-81.  Ptlm. Lehman and Sgt. Funkhouser then joined Ptlm. Barrett in an attempt to stop the vehicle.  The vehicle failed to stop and exited I-81 at exit 14.  The vehicle continued west on Dry Run Road and the involved Officers backed off the suspect but continued at a safe distance.  Upon approaching Thatcher Road, it appeared that the suspect vehicle turned onto Thatcher Road.  Sgt. Funkhouser later located the suspect “blacked out” behind a barn off Working Deer Drive.  The suspect again fled through a field and back onto Thatcher Road towards Dry Run Road.  The suspect lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a utility pole in the back yard of 2008 Thatcher Road.  The suspect was taken into custody and transported to City Hospital where he was treated for minor injuries and released to the custody of Deputy Welcome of the BCSD.  The driver was charged with Fleeing DUI w/property damage and Fleeing Reckless.
