Suspect flees, found in brush

GORE -- A Frederick County man was charged with eluding police and driving under the influence of alcohol after deputies chased him on car and foot early Sunday morning.

Wayne Allen Coen, 38, of 1803 Ebenezer Church Road, Gore, is still being held at the Northwestern Regional Adult Detention Center on the felony eluding police charge; DUI, for a 0.11 blood-alcohol level; and several other traffic offenses, including having an expired registration and no proper inspection, according to Frederick County Sheriff's Lt. Michael Richardson.

Around 12:30 a.m. Sunday, deputies noticed a purple 1976 Chevrolet Nova two-door with no registration near Northwestern Pike (U.S. 50) in the Back Mountain Road area, Richardson said When the driver failed to stop after the deputies activated emergency equipment, the officers chased him east down Northwestern Pike, on to Dicks Hollow Road and Indian Hollow Road.

Richardson said the driver continued to speed excessively and run stop signs. He turned on to North Hayfield Road. Around the 600 block, deputies successfully used spike strips, and Coen stopped in a driveway at 360 N. Hayfield Road.

Coen fled on foot, with deputies following him. A thermal imager provided by Gainesboro Fire and Rescue helped to located the suspect, who was found lying in tall brush on a nearby farm, Richardson said.
