Bridgeville– The Delaware State Police arrest a Georgetown man after he led Troopers on a pursuit and resisted arrest.

The incident occurred on Saturday, March 24, 2018 at approximately 9:12 p.m. when a Trooper witnessed a gold, 2004 Nissan Maxima traveling eastbound on Seashore Highway (Rt. 404) near Cannon Road with a headlight out. As the Trooper activated their emergency equipment in an attempt to stop the vehicle, the operator accelerated and a pursuit ensued.  Stopped sticks were subsequently deployed bringing the vehicle to a stop on Redden Road, east of Sussex Highway.

The operator and sole occupant, identified as 40-year-old Christopher J. Albury of Georgetown exited the vehicle and a foot pursuit ensued.  After a brief struggle, Albury was taken into custody. 

Through further investigation,  it was determined that Albury was found to be under the influence of alcohol.  Albury was transported to Troop 5 where he was charged with Driving Under the Influence, Resisting Arrest, Failure to Stop on the Command of a Police Officer and numerous other traffic related offenses.

Albury was arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court 3 and committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution on $4,864.00 secured bond.
