Waldorf Man Leads Police on Car Chase


DFC. J. Hudson was on routine patrol on Oct. 29 at 2:14 a.m. on H.G. Trueman Road and Cove Point Road in Lusby, when he observed a green Isuzu cross the right line of the road numerous times.

A check of the registration through the Calvert Control Center revealed the tags were not registered to the Isuzu vehicle. DFC. Hudson activated his emergency equipment in an attempt to pull over the Isuzu, however, the driver accelerated in speed, traveling 72 MPH in a 30 MPH zone on Little Cove Point Road. The operator of the vehicle turned the lights off and attempted to hide on Striped Bass Court.

The Isuzu then pulled into DFC. Hudson’s lane and accelerated toward the patrol vehicle. DFC. Hudson veered his patrol vehicle to the right and avoided being struck by the Isuzu, then turned around and pursued it.

After a short chase, the driver, later identified as Jimmy L. Herring, Jr., 33, of Waldorf, pulled over and stopped the vehicle. The driver placed his hands outside of the driver’s window and stated, “I give up”.

Herring was charged with Reckless Endangerment and issued citations for Speeding, Driving While Revoked, and Reckless Driving among others.
