A Westminster man was arrested March 31 after he allegedly resisted arrest and led officers on a car chase.
Jason Tyler Green, 24, of the 3900 block of Littlestown Pike, was charged with one criminal count of resisting arrest and 19 traffic violations, including negligent driving, speeding, failure to stop for an emergency vehicle and failure to stop at a stop sign.
He was held without bond as of 3:20 p.m. Monday.
According to the statement of charges, an officer attempted to serve an arrest warrant for Green just before midnight on March 30 at Green’s residence in Westminster. They knocked on the window of a vehicle Green was sleeping in, when Green said he had “bigger things to deal with,” and that police would have to “shoot him” before he went to jail, according to the statement.
Green then moved to the driver’s seat of the vehicle and drove through the yard to get on southbound Md. 97. For about 30 minutes, the document said, multiple officers pursued Green with their lights and sirens on. Green failed to stop at “numerous” stop signs and drove at speeds between 70 and 90 mph, the document said.
Green stopped his vehicle near Lassiter Circle and Frisbee Court and got out, police said. He was reaching into a rear door when officers removed him from the vehicle and attempted to arrest him, the document said.
Green resisted arrest and “screamed profanities” before being arrested and taken to the Carroll County Detention Center, the document said.
Green does not have an attorney listed in online court records.
