Maryland State Police and U.S. marshals arrested a man in Front Royal on Friday after he led police on a multi-state chase in a stolen vehicle.
Police attempted to arrest William Galvin Jr., 29, of Hughesville, Maryland, on Friday in Maryland when he attempted to drive a stolen vehicle into one of the arresting officers, according to a release from Maryland State Police.
Ron Snyder, a civilian working in communications for the Maryland State Police, said police in Ocean City, Maryland, attempted to arrest Galvin when the car he was driving was flagged as stolen. Galvin led police from Ocean City into Delaware and back into Maryland before fleeing to Virginia.
The Maryland State Police Apprehension Team along with U.S. marshals arrested Galvin on Friday evening at a trailer in Front Royal, according to the release.w
Court documents show Galvin has a Luray address. Snyder said he believes that Galvin may have family in the area.
Police are charging Galvin with assault and second-degree assault on a law enforcement officer. According to the release and online court records, there are no current charges of stealing the vehicle used in the chase.
Snyder said Maryland State Police are only pressing charges involving their officers but because Galvin’s chase spanned multiple states and police departments, other charges could be filed.
Galvin is being held at the Rappahannock-Shenandoah-Warren Regional County Jail until he is sent back to Maryland.
Delaware has also filed a warrant of extradition for Galvin.
Galvin appeared in Warren County General District Court on Tuesday morning.
