DORCHESTER CO., Md. - An attempted traffic stop, leads to a vehicle pursuit in Dorchester County. The Sheriff's Office says a deputy tried to stop a vehicle for a traffic violation on Route 392 at North Tara Road, but instead of stopping, the apparently continued driving.

According to the report, the Deputy followed to vehicle, and watched as the driver and passenger threw items out of their car. The chase reportedly ended, when an assisting deputy, used stop sticks to flatten the vehicle's tires.

During the arrests of the driver, 35-year-old Bryan Potter, of Cambridge, and passenger, 32-year-old Ira Nichols, of Hurlock, deputies discovered a 4-year-old child in the back seat, not in a child safety seat, or buckled in.

Potter and Nichols were both charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia, and reckless endangerment. Potter also received several traffic citations.

Police say they found 1.75 pounds of marijuana and $1031 in cash, that were thrown out the windows during the chase. Both suspects are being held without bond.
