Police lodge 23 traffic violations against motorcyclist
Dover Safe Streets officers on May 8 arrested David A. Thompson, 25, after he committed 23 traffic violations while trying to escape from a traffic stop.
Police had been looking for Thompson after he had eluded officers earlier in the week, said department spokesman Cpl. Mark Hoffman.
Officers spotted Thompson at approximately 7:30 p.m. Thursday, while he was driving a Suzuki motorcycle in Dover, Hoffman Said. Police tailed Thompson as he drove recklessly through town and were finally able to stop him. Thompson was carrying a small amount of marijuana when he was taken into custody.
In addition to the traffic citations, Thompson was charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
He faces additional charges from the prior incidents, Hoffman said.
