Man arrested after multi-county chase begins in Spotsy
A Stafford man faces multiple charges in four counties following a chase that began Thursday afternoon in Spotsylvania. Major Troy Skebo with the Spotsylvania Sheriff’s Office tells us the incident began about 5 when authorities heard that a wanted man–43 year old Daniel Conley–was in the area of the 9200 block of Courthouse Road.
Deputies attempted to conduct a traffic stop, but the driver refused to stop. Police say the driver continued to drive reckless on Courthouse Rd at a high rate of speed heading towards Lake Anna in the western part of the county. The motor vehicle pursuit entered Louisa County on New Bridge Rd (Rt 208) and continued onto Zachary Taylor Hwy (Rt 522). Louisa Sheriff’s Office assisted with the pursuit until it entered Orange County on Zachary Taylor Hwy (Rt 522) where Orange County Sheriff’s Office and Virginia State Police joined the pursuit around Zachary Taylor Hwy (Rt 522) and Constitution Hwy (Rt 20). The pursuit continued into Culpeper County on Zachary Taylor Hwy (Rt 522) where Culpeper Sheriff’s Office took over the pursuit.
Just prior to Germanna Hwy (Rt 3), the suspect used his vehicle to strike a Culpeper Deputy’s patrol vehicle on Zachary Taylor Hwy (Rt 522). The pursuit ended after a pursuit intervention technique was used to disable the suspects’ vehicle. The driver was taken into custody and held under no bond in the Culpeper County Jail.
Skebo says outstanding warrants in which he was wanted for at the time of the pursuit include:
Felony probation violation (Spotsylvania)
(2) capias for violation of community base probation (Stafford)
Charges as a result of the motor vehicle pursuit
Improper display of tags
