Frederick Man Collides with Police in Intersection
December 3, 2019
WINCHESTER – Charles Leldon Shelly III was arrested following a collision with a police cruiser in a Winchester City intersection Monday morning.

Instead, his 2005 Saturn SUV rear-ended a Winchester Police vehicle at about 9:20 am. The police cruiser was stopped and the crash caused a chain reaction and forced the cruiser into a car in front of it. Both the SUV and the police vehicle were heavily damaged and had to be towed from the intersection, the third vehicle only had minor damage.
No parties suffered major injuries were suffered from the collision. One officer was transported to Winchester Medical Center for treatment and he was released later that day.
Shelly was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of drugs, driving on a suspended license, possession of drug paraphernalia and violation of probation. He is now held without bond in the Northwest Regional Adult Detention Center.
