Motor Vehicle Theft Case #15-23032:
On April 27 at 9:04 a.m. Dep. D. Naughton was on patrol in the area of Md. Rt. 4 and Rousby Hall Road in Lusby when he conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle and made contact with the driver.  The driver indicated he had left his driver’s license at home but gave Naughton his name and date of birth.  Naughton returned to his patrol vehicle to run a record check and as he was returning to again contact the driver, the subject vehicle fled south on Md. Rt. 4.  The vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed, passing vehicles on the right shoulder.  Dep. Naughton lost sight of the vehicle and when he observed it again, the vehicle had spun out across all lanes of Md. Rt. 4 and crashed into the guardrail in the center median just north of Southern Connector Blvd.  The driver exited the vehicle and ran across the north bound lanes, up an embankment toward H.G. Trueman Road and onto the porch of a nearby home.  Dep. Naughton drew his service revolver, giving verbal commands, and the driver threw his hands in the air saying “just shoot me”.  Naughton advised the subject to lie on the ground, which he did, and he was handcuffed and arrested.  He was identified as Chris William Savage, 38, of Lusby, which is not the identity he initially provided.  Savage was driving on a suspended driver’s license and was also wanted for second degree assault through the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office and another open warrant through the Maryland State Police for failure to appear.  The vehicle Savage was driving was found to have been stolen shortly before the above incident.  Savage was charged with theft of a motor vehicle, theft $1,000 to under $10,000, false statement to a police officer, fraud, eluding, reckless driving, and several other traffic violations.
