Prince George's man arrested after chase
A Prince George's County man was arrested early yesterday after an hourlong chase that began when Baltimore County police attempted to stop him on the Beltway in Woodlawn, authorities said.
Two police cars were rammed in the chase, which ended in a crash in Prince George's County, according to police.
Terrence Anthony Brooks, 30, of Mitchellville was charged with first-degree assault, malicious destruction of property, reckless driving, fleeing and eluding, and driving on a suspended license, authorities said.
No one was injured in the chase, police said.
The chase began about 5:20 a.m. on the Beltway near Security Boulevard, where Baltimore County police attempted to stop a 1994 Chrysler with stolen tags, authorities said. The driver failed to pull over and led police on a chase at about 70 mph.
Near Howard County, state police took over the pursuit, which continued down Interstate 95 to the inner loop of the Capital Beltway, to the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, to New York Avenue and then back to the Capital Beltway, state police said. State police said they pulled away from the pursuit when the driver entered Washington, but a state police helicopter tracked the car, and police moved in as it came back into Maryland near FedEx Field in Landover.
In an attempt to elude police, the driver rammed two police cars, state police said. The driver then steered the car onto a nearby sidewalk and struck a metal pole, police said.
