On December 4th, 2021, at approximately 12:29 am, an officer observed a traffic violation in the 300 block of East Main Street. The officer activated their emergency lights and attempted a traffic stop. The operator of the vehicle continued driving, but eventually stopped at the intersection of West Allen Street and North Frederick Street. The officer exited their vehicle and the stopped vehicle began pulling away. The officer got back into their vehicle and followed the vehicle. The vehicle turned onto North Frederick Street and stopped in the 100 block. The vehicle again started driving away as the officer exited their patrol vehicle. The vehicle continued driving, turning onto West Green Street. The vehicle stopped at the intersection of North York Street and West Green Street. Again, upon the officer exiting their vehicle, the vehicle pulled away. This time the vehicle turned onto North York Street and pulled away from the officer at a high rate of speed. The officer attempted to pursue the vehicle, but eventually lost sight of the vehicle. The fleeing vehicle was last seen turning onto Wertzville Road in Silver Spring Township.

The driver of the vehicle has since been identified after an investigation and criminal charges are pending.
