Shortly after 3 A.M. this morning, a Chatham-Kent Police officer observed a vehicle travelling on William St. in Chatham, without any license plates. The officer followed the vehicle into a parking lot, but it continued through and back onto the roadways. The officer activated the roof lights and siren, and the vehicle failed to stop, while proceeding through multiple stop signs. Police continued to follow the vehicle, and it ran out of fuel a short while after. The lone occupant surrendered peacefully, and was taken into custody.
The 32 year old Chatham man was arrested and charged with fleeing from police, failing to stop at stop signs, prohibited driving, driving while under suspension, dangerous driving and driving without license plants. He was held in custody pending a bail hearing.
