June 12, 1997

INWOOD, W.Va. - An Inwood man was arrested following a police pursuit in Berkeley County early Wednesday morning, according to Magistrate Court records.

Arrested was Troy Breeden, 29, of Route 3, according to court records.

Breeden was charged with driving under the influence, obstructing, driving with a suspended license and driving without insurance, according to court records.

The chase began when Berkeley County Sheriff's Deputy R.L. Gardner saw a small truck traveling at high speed near the intersection of U.S. 11 and W.Va. 51 in Inwood, court records said.

The truck traveled west on W.Va. 51 and then turned onto Arden Nollville Road, according to court records.

After Garder turned on his emergency lights, the driver of the truck started to pull over but then accelerated, court records said.


The truck turned into Audley's mobile home park and turned around in the road, said court records.

Gardner said he believed the truck would have rammed his car, so no attempt was made to block it, court records said. The truck then returned to Arden Nollville Road.

Police later found the truck wrecked at a guardrail near the intersection of W.Va. 51 and Arden Nollville Road, according to court records. It was not clear where Breeden was arrested.
