A wild road rage incident early Easter morning resulted in the arrest of three suspects.

On April 17th at 1:38 a.m. deputies responded to the area of Woodstream Boulevard for a fight. As Sergeant K.P. Lytle made his way toward the scene, he learned the parties involved had fled in two vehicles and were getting onto I-95 northbound. Sgt. Lytle witnessed the vehicles travelling at a high rate of speed and got both stopped with the assistance of Deputy J.C. Thomas, Deputy J.D. Hurt, and Deputy E.T. Osborn.

The driver of one vehicle, Jonathan Hernandez Alvarez, 32, of Prince William, claimed the other driver was chasing him and had assaulted his passenger, Tharzis Lona Ayestas, 30, of Stafford. Hernandez Alvarez was found to be intoxicated and he was arrested. He was charged with DUI second in five years with a blood alcohol content between .15 and .20 and assault and battery.

The investigation revealed Hernandez Alvarez believed he had been cut off by a vehicle driven by Kierra Chapman, 25, of Stafford. Both vehicles stopped at the Woodstream pool and a fight ensued. The combatants returned to their vehicles, but reemerged for a second round of fighting. After round two, both vehicles fled toward the Interstate where the traffic stop was conducted.

Hernandez Alvarez was held without bond at the Rappahannock Regional Jail on his charges. Chapman and Lona Ayestas were each charged with assault and battery and released by the magistrate on an unsecured bond. Both vehicles were towed from the scene.
