FCSO arrest a Maryland man after a high speed chase
The Frederick County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) reports the arrest of a Baltimore Maryland man after a high speed chase.
Michael Patrick Stewart was reported to be assaulting his child’s mother at the Sheetz store on North Frederick Pike and fled.
A Deputy spotted Stewart on Fox Drive and attempted to pull him over only to have him refuse to stop and accelerate towards the Winchester City limits.
Stewart u-turned and started back north toward Route 37 driving erratically through several yards in an attempt to evade.
More Deputies began to converge on Stewart who continued to drive erratically and at times in the wrong direction.
Stewart eventually exited at the Winchester Medical Center exit and collided with another vehicle which stopped the pursuit.
The suspect exited the vehicle and attempted to flee on foot when a good Samaritan with Deputies stopped him.
After being taken into custody Stewart initially gave false information it was discovered that he was driving suspended and on probation in Maryland.
Stewart was at the time of this report at Winchester Medical Center recovering from injuries sustained in the crash.
The citizen in the accident refused medical attention after being checked by Emergency Medical Personnel.
The mother who reported the assault appears unwilling to divulge additional information.
Stewart currently faces several charges including eluding, felony hit and run, providing false information and more.
