Man charged after alleged vehicle theft and police chase in Salisbury

SALISBURY, Md. - A man is facing multiple charges, after deputies say he stole a vehicle and led them on a vehicle chase, in Salisbury.

The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office says on Sunday, just before 5:00 PM, a deputy attempted to pull over a vehicle driven by 22-year-old Tavon Tull, of Salisbury. According to the report, Tull tried to evade authorities by driving through backyards, at one point, in efforts to get away, in Salisbury.  Deputies say the pursuit ended when Tull lost control of the vehicle and ran off the road into some bushes, in the 1000 block of Delaware Avenue. Tull then reportedly exited the vehicle and continued to flee on foot. Authorities report that the deputy immediately recognized Tull as a wanted person. Tull was then apparently caught by the deputy, but resisted the deputy's efforts to take him into custody.

After further investigation, law enforcement learned from the owners of the vehicle that Tull was driving the vehicle without the owner's knowledge or permission. Tull's privilege to drive a vehicle in Maryland was also apparently suspended.

Tull was charged with theft of motor vehicle, resisting arrest, driving suspended, attempt to flee and elude, and reckless driving. He is currently being held at the Wicomico County Detention Center on a $1,000 bond. He was issued an additional $500 for a bench warrant in a robbery case.
