Antonio Tyler was arrested at his home in Milford
Delaware State Police troopers arrested a Milford resident, identified as Antonio Tyler, 38, after he allegedly led Dover officers on a high-speed chase through the Capital City.
The incident started at about 2:32 a.m. Nov. 3 in the 400 block of South New Street, Dover Police Department spokesman Master Cpl. Mark Hoffman said.
Patrol officers saw Tyler’s car hit a curb, but Tyler refused to obey signals to stop; Tyler drove to Governors Avenue, where he sped away at speeds more than 100 mph, sometimes driving on the wrong side of the roadway and running a red light at the intersection with Webbs Lane.
Police stopped their pursuit as a matter of public safety, Hoffman said.
However, state police found Tyler at his home in the first block of Whispering Oak Drive, Milford, and took him into custody.
A check of his car revealed both full and empty bottles of alcohol in the vehicle, a cigarette that had been dipped in PCP, and an unidentified white powder in a plastic bag that Tyler stated was powder cocaine, Hoffman said.
Tyler is charged with disregarding a police officer’s signal, possession of cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving under the influence, driving on a suspended or revoked license and numerous traffic violations.
He is being held at the Vaughn Correctional Center on a $2,750 secured bond.
