A Hagerstown man was arrested Tuesday morning following a vehicle chase. Stephen Zachery Peplinski, 26, is charged with 1st-degree assault, 2nd-degree assault, fleeing and eluding, reckless driving and other traffic offenses.
Police say they were called to 412 Freemont Street around 9:00 AM for a disturbance. Authorities says Peplinski was involved, but had fled the scene by the time officers arrived.
Police searched the area for Peplinski who was also wanted on 1st-degree assault and 2nd-degree assault charges for an incident on Monday.
His car was located along Route 40 near Nottingham Road. Officers tried to stop the vehicle, but Peplinski kept on going.
He was stopped near the landfill after a Washington County Sheriff's Deputy used stopsticks to flatten the front tire on his car.
Peplinski refused to get out, and officers had to remove him from the driver's side seat.
He was taken to the Washington County Detention Center.
