On June 15th, 2023, at approximately 10:34 pm officers were assisting with Jubilee Day activities when a vehicle entered into the event area in the 1st block of North High Street. This area was still not open to vehicular traffic. An officer in the area attempted a traffic stop on the vehicle and the vehicle fled from the officer. A short pursuit ensued which ended behind an apartment building when the vehicle came to a stop. The drive of the vehicle, later identified as Gamal, proceeded to run on foot attempting to elude officers. He was taken into custody after a foot pursuit. Gamal was found to be under the influence of alcohol. It was determined he was not safe to operate a motor vehicle and he was arrested. A preliminary hearing will be held at a later date.
