High speed chase on I-95 leads to arrest

Suspect tried to hit Troopers, police cars

PERRYVILLE, Md. - Maryland State Police have arrested one man after he lead them on a high speed chase on I-95 topping speeds of 108 miles per hour.

Police say they stopped Tyree Jordan, 25, of Elkton on Northbound I-95 in Perryville for several traffic violations, but as a Trooper approached the car, he took off at a high rate of speed.

The Trooper pursued the vehicle at speeds of up to 108 mph. During the pursuit along I-95, Jordan deliberately attempted to use his car to strike several police vehicles.

Troopers were able to make evasive maneuvers to avoid colliding with the suspect's vehicle.

The pursuit continued into Delaware, where the suspect side swiped another vehicle, before going back into Maryland on Red Hill Road.

Troopers that were monitoring the pursuit from foot, placed tire deflation devices on the road way, as Jordan attempted to hit them.

The Trooper was able to leap out of the guard rail in order to avoid being hit by the car. As Jordan's car came to a stop, he jumped out and attempted to flee on foot into a wooded area.

It didn't take long before police caught up with him and after a brief struggle, took him into their custody.

Maryland State Police recovered suspected Marijuana and Heroin from the vehicle. Police later determined that Jordan is unlicensed with suspended driving privileges and has an outstanding warrant for previous traffic offenses.

Thankfully, there were no reported injuries from the motorist that was side swiped by Jordan or any of the Troopers.
