Teenager charged with fleeing from police

A 17-year-old Salisbury man was arrested Thursday night after authorities say he fled from a traffic stop less than a block from the Salisbury Police department.
Officers reported they attempted to stop the vehicle for a traffic violation near the intersection of Depot Street and East Liberty Street at about 9:30 p.m. when the vehicle accelerated, reaching speeds of 95 mph.
The driver, identified as Laquan Shaeed Davis, was charged after police say he turned onto North Main Street traveling toward Spencer, then turned onto East Steele Street and lost control of the 1997 Toyota Camry, hitting an embankment. No one was injured in the incident, the report said.
Davis, of 1716 Second St., was charged with felony fleeing to elude arrest, possession of marijuana, no driver’s license, having a white light to the rear of the vehicle, and failing to appear for misdemeanor larceny charges.
He was given a $4,000 bond and was in jail Friday morning.
