Man charged with DWI, fleeing
FREDERICK, Md. - A combination of the state's new primary seat belt law and a gung-ho, off-duty state trooper led to a drunken driving arrest Wednesday, Maryland State Police said.
Lawrence E. Bassham, 55, of Rolling Green Court in Clarksburg, Md., was charged with DWI, driving with a revoked license, fleeing and eluding and failure to wear a safety belt, police said.
Trooper Wesley Lutz, who was off-duty at about 5 p.m., attempted to stop a 1995 Ford truck on Md. 355 at Md. 109 because the driver was not wearing a seat belt, police said. Lutz followed the vehicle for about two miles back to Bassham's residence, where two on-duty troopers arrested him, police said.
Cpl. Chris Sasse praised Lutz, who graduated from the police academy about five months ago.
"He took the initiative. That's the kind of dedication we put in this job," he said.
Bassham's wife, Elaine E. Bassham, was charged with knowingly allowing an unauthorized driver to operate her vehicle, police said.
