RECKLESS DRIVING: On Aug. 29 at 1:17 a.m. Cpl. J. Timko observed a Chevrolet Suburban going at a high rate of speed on Hawthorne Road. Cpl. Timko tried to catch up with the vehicle, but lost sight of it. As Cpl.

The driver bailed out of the vehicle and fled prior to the officer's arrival. Four passengers were inside the car. One person was transported to the hospital and treated for a minor injury sustained in the crash. The driver, Devon Curtis, 20, of Marbury, came back to the scene claiming he was there to help his friends and that he was not in the vehicle. He was covered in dirt and his pant legs were wet. It was later determined that Curtis was indeed the driver and he fled because he did not have a driver's license. Curtis was arrested and charged with multiple traffic violations.

He was charged with disorderly conduct, destruction of property and failure to obey a lawful order.
