(Updated at 4:45 p.m.) A 25-year-old Washington, D.C. man is being held without bond for a high speed chase on Interstate 495.
Nye Lujeen Faulk was booked into jail on April 6 and held without bond for assaulting an officer, resisting arrest, eluding police, driving with an open container of alcohol, and possession with intent to distribute more than one ounce but not more than five pounds of marijuana.
At around 7:30 p.m. on that day, a Virginia State Police trooper was driving west on Interstate 495 toward Old Town when he reported being passed by a white Infiniti coupe traveling in excess of 100 miles per hour. A chase ensued that lasted about five minutes and speeds reached 130 miles per hour, according to a search warrant affidavit.
“Faulk made several attempts to destroy of obstruct any criminal nexus associated with the vehicle and its occupants by discarding packaging materials commonly associated with the sales and distribution of narcotics,” police reported. “Faulk ultimately lost control of his vehicle and crashed on I-495… east of Route 1 at the 177.4-mile marker.”
The chase ended when the Infiniti rear-ended a 2020 Ford Expedition, according to Virginia State Police.
“The impact of the crash caused the Infiniti to spin around into the left shoulder of the interstate and come to rest against the Jersey Wall,” VSP public relations director Corinne Geller told ALXnow. “The driver of the Expedition, a 48-year-old man from King George, Va., was not injured in the crash.”
The trooper said that two men ran from the car, and that Faulk, who was allegedly the driver, was apprehended after a “brief physical altercation with my person.”
Police found $17,518.95 in cash on Faulk, and inside the car recovered electronic scales, packaging materials and marijuana.
No information on the other suspect who fled the car was provided by Virginia State Police.
Faulk goes to court for the incident on May 7.
