State Police Apprehend Woodbridge Man After Wild Chase on I-95
A Woodbridge man faces multiple charges after attempting to flee from police by vehicle and on foot Friday morning (March 11, 2011).
At 8:04 a.m., Virginia State Police Trooper A.M. Adams attempted to stop a 2000 Ford Explorer for an expired inspection sticker near the 157 mile marker on Interstate 95 in Prince William County. The driver of the Explorer, Earl Fisher, 26, of Woodbridge, refused to stop for the trooper and a pursuit was initiated.
The Ford Explorer fled from the trooper heading south on Interstate 95 in excess of 100 mph. The SUV got off I-95 at Exit 152 and headed south on Route 234. Fisher then jumped from the moving vehicle and ran off on foot.
Fisher was apprehended minutes later by Trooper Adams. Fisher was taken into custody without incident.
Meanwhile, the Ford Explorer continued down Route 234 without a driver, ran off the right side of the road and struck a tree. No other vehicles were struck by the moving vehicle.
Fisher has been charged with driving on a suspended license, attempting to elude a police officer and for having an expired inspection sticker on his vehicle. Fisher was also wanted by Prince William County Police on an outstanding warrant.
