Law Enforcement Arrests Man Accused of Eluding Police in West Orange, Montclair, New Jersey

Montclair NJ Eluding Police AttorneysPolice in Montclair New Jersey recently arrested a man who allegedly led officers on a car pursuit through a number of NJ towns.

The chase began around 11:47 a.m. According to New Jersey State Police, several drivers on I-80 in Parsippany contacted law enforcement to report an “erratic driver.”

NJ State Police troopers later spotted the suspect driving a white Dodge pickup truck eastbound on the highway.

The patrol officers attempted to get the suspect to stop his vehicle, but he allegedly continued driving and fled the area. At one point, the suspect moved from I-80 to I-280. He later turned onto Exit 8 and headed for Prospect Avenue in West Orange, NJ. That’s when police broke off their pursuit.

Approximately one hour later, police received a tip that the suspect was in Montclair, NJ. The suspect was eventually apprehended at the YMCA of Montclair.

It is likely that the suspect will face criminal charges for eluding police. He may also be cited for traffic violations like reckless driving and speeding.

If the suspect is convicted on the charges of eluding law enforcement, he faces severe penalties. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:29-2, anyone who knowingly flees or attempts to elude a law enforcement officer after having received a signal to bring the vehicle to a full stop can be charged with a third degree felony. A conviction on third degree eluding police charges could lead to a sentence of 3-5 years in NJ State Prison.
