OCEAN CITY, Md. - A Maryland man is accused of leading police on a chase through a local beach town. Ocean City Police say officers tried to stop a vehicle in Coastal Highway near 74th Street, for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, but it fled. Police followed suit, chasing the driver, 29-year-old Shawn Martin, through the city.

According to the report, during the pursuit, Martin ran several stop signs, drove at a high rate of speed, ignored Police signals, hit a bush, crossed four lanes of traffic barely missing the center median, drove onto a sidewalk before finally stopping when he hit a street sign.

Police say, after the crash, Martin got out of his vehicle, and tried to run, but was stopped by officers, and arrested. During the on-scene investigation, it was reportedly determined that Martin was intoxicated. There were no injuries during the incident. Martin was issued 49 citations related to reckless/aggressive driving. He is being held by Ocean City Police at this time.
