A 32-year-old Milford man was arrested Aug. 19 for allegedly ignoring a police officer who tried to conduct a traffic stop around 11:50 p.m. on W. Market Street in Georgetown.
According to the Georgetown Police Department, officers observed a green Jeep Cherokee speeding, and when they tried to stop the vehicle, the operator, Brian Jackson, continued westbound on W. Market Street before turning onto U.S. Route 113. Police said the Jeep continued northbound on U.S. Route 113 and refused to stop for police, who were in fully marked patrol cars with emergency lights and sirens activated. Police were able to lay down a spike strip at the intersection of U.S. Route 113 and Robbins Road. Police said the vehicle’s left front tire hit the spike strip and the vehicle became disabled about one mile north of the intersection.
Police said Jackson was taken into custody with no further incident and told police he didn’t stop because he didn’t think he did anything wrong. He was charged with disregarding a police officer’s signal, speeding and several other traffic charges. He was released with a future court date.
