DUI Suspect Leads Police On Chase Across Both Virginias

Comments (0)

A man led police on a chase through both Virginias and damaged a police vehicle on May 2 before finally being arrested in Tazewell County, Virginia and Mercer County, West Virginia on charges of DUI and attempting to elude police.

Police pursued 34-year-old Bluefield, West Virginia resident Larry S. Patrick Jr. in a chase that began in Bluewell, West Virginia and ended with his apprehension in Bluefield, Virginia, according to Mercer County Sheriff’s Deputy D.A. Furches.

Mercer County Sheriff’s Deputy A.M. Ballard attempted to pull Patrick over, but Patrick struck Ballard’s cruiser with his Chevy S-10 pickup truck, knocking off a mirror and part of the front end of the vehicle, according to Furches. Furches said that Ballard was uninjured.

Tazewell County police arrested Patrick on charges of first offense DUI and attempting to elude police. He posted bail, but was re-arrested in Mercer County on charges of second offense DUI, second offense driving on a suspended license, and felony fleeing while driving under the influence.
