Hagerstown Police said Friday they have caught and identified the suspected driver of a car involved in a chase Wednesday.

Jermaine Christopher D'Oliverra, 22, whose address was not available, allegedly pointed a loaded revolver at a woman in a parking lot on Summit Avenue on Wednesday and threatened to kill her, police said.

When a police officer responded to the woman's 911 call, D'Oliverra allegedly dropped the revolver and drove away in a silver 2001 Mazda 626. City police pursued the car briefly then, with assistance from Washington County Narcotics Task Force members, stopped the car at Hamilton Boulevard and arrested three passengers, but the driver got away.

At about 1 a.m. Friday, Hagerstown Police stopped D'Oliverra on the 300 block of North Potomac Street, police said. He gave a false name and date of birth when he was arrested, but was identified through fingerprints sent to the FBI, police said.

He is facing charges of first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, transporting a handgun and using a handgun in the commission of a felony. His bond was set at $50,000.

Police said D'Oliverra also is wanted on a warrant from New York for a parole violation.

Police said Friday that they still weren't certain of the identities of the three passengers, who were charged with auto theft and transporting a handgun.
