On November 23, 2015 at approximately 1122hrs, Dep. Holt of the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office attempted to initiate a traffic stop on a 1996 Chevrolet Impala for failing to use a turn signal when making a left turn into the parking lot of the American Legion in Lusby from southbound Maryland Route 765. The driver of the Impala made an abrupt turn through a grassy area and returned to Rt. 765 northbound in an attempt to elude Dep. Holt and Dep. Dean Naughton. The vehicle continued north on Rt. 765 with Sheriff’s Office units pursuing. The vehicle accessed northbound Rt. 4 at the north end of HG Truman Road. The vehicle was on Rt. 4 for a short period of time before the driver made a U-Turn at Nursery Road and continued travelling south on Rt.4 before making a left onto Cove Point Road. The vehicle travelled east on Cove Point Road prior to turning left onto HG Truman Road to head back north. The driver continued to commit numerous traffic violations before making an abrupt right turn onto Camp Canoy Road. The Impala reached speeds of 100 miles per hour during the pursuit.
Once on Camp Canoy Road, Dep. Holt observed the drivers switch seating positions while the vehicle was still in motion and actively being pursued. Dep. Holt saw the opportunity to terminate the pursuit by using a Precision Immobilization Technique (PIT) which caused the vehicle to spin before it came to rest partially in a ditch. Both occupants of the vehicle were taken into custody without incident once the vehicle was stopped.
The first driver was identified as Terrence David Brooks (34) of Huntingtown, Maryland and the second driver was identified as Ali As-Siddiq (29) of Prince George Virginia. Both subjects will be charged with fleeing and eluding as well as multiple other traffic charges. Terrence Brooks’ privilege to drive in the state of Maryland was both suspended and revoked. The suspects were transported to the Calvert County Detention Center where they were processed accordingly.
