A King George man was arrested yesterday evening after a high speed pursuit through Stafford County.

On May 30th at 6:40 p.m. Deputies A.J. Charoenthep and S.A. Fulford were travelling southbound on U.S. 1 near Centreport Parkway, when a grey Scion with no tags passed their marked patrol car, going the same direction, at a high rate of speed.

The Scion accelerated to over 77 mph in the posted 45 mph zone as the deputies activated their emergency equipment to conduct a traffic stop. The suspect failed to stop and passed through several red traffic lights, initiating a pursuit. The chase continued to Butler Road, Chatham Heights Road and finally Kings Highway as the suspect passed other vehicles on the shoulder and over the double yellow.

Deputies were unable to deploy spike strips and the pursuit reached 116 mph on Kings Highway. Deputy L.T. Ward was able to get in front of the suspect vehicle, and the suspect must have seen “Stafford County” on the side of his patrol car. As soon as Deputy Ward got in front to perform a rolling road block, the suspect pulled over and surrendered.

The suspect was identified as Daniel Moore, 24. Moore was charged with felony eluding, driving suspended, reckless driving, no insurance, no registration and six counts of failure to obey a traffic light. He was held without bond at the Rappahannock Regional Jail.
