A Martinsburg, W.Va., man was sentenced to two years in prison Monday for leading police on a chase through Washington County last November.
Douglas Craig Tederick, 42, was convicted of fleeing and eluding and driving while revoked in a nonjury trial. Washington County Circuit Judge John H. McDowell sentenced Tederick to a year for each offense.
Tederick also received a one-year concurrent sentence for driving on a suspended license.
The chase began in West Virginia on Nov. 2, 1997, when West Virginia State Police were headed to another call. A state trooper flashed his lights to get around Tederick, who accelerated, police testified.
West Virginia troopers pursued Tederick to the border, where Washington County Sheriff's deputies took up the chase. Tederick's vehicle reached speeds above 80 mph, Deputy John Ralston testified.
