Pursuit ends with DUI arrest in Stafford

A pursuit along Stafford roads Sunday evening ended with the suspect’s arrest for DUI in his own driveway.

On Sunday evening at 9:28 p.m., Deputy D.S. Jett observed a GMC truck travelling on Kings  Highway weaving in the lane of travel. The truck turned on to Forest Lane Road and the tires  briefly left the roadway before coming back on the road and crossing over the double yellow lines.

Deputy Jett initiated a traffic stop and the suspect decreased his speed, but did not stop. The  pursuit continued to a left on Caisson Road and the suspect increased his speed and continued to  veer into the oncoming lane of travel. Finally, after three miles, the suspect pulled into a  driveway on Lorenzo Drive and surrendered.

The suspect was identified as 63-year old Ricky Story of Stafford. Story had bloodshot eyes, was  unsteady on his feet and had an odor of alcoholic beverage on his breath. Field sobriety tests  were administered and he was arrested.

Story was charged with DUI, drinking while driving, eluding, and no operator’s license. He was  held on a $2,000 unsecure bond at the Rappahannock Regional Jail.  This was one of three DUI arrests that Deputy Jett made over the busy Easter weekend.
