OC Police Arrest Dover Man After Pursuit

Posted: Updated:

OCEAN CITY, Md. - The Ocean City Police Department says they arrested a Dover man after a pursuit.

According to reports, on January 31st at approximately 2:40 AM, Ocean City police officers were on marked patrol in the area of Coastal Highway and 100th Street when they observed a vehicle traveling southbound at a high rate of speed. Police reportedly attempted to initiate a traffic stop in the area of 62nd Street after officers observed the vehicle exceeding the posted speed limit, however, the driver of the vehicle did not stop.

The driver, later identified as Alex Ryan Little, 24, of Dover, DE, reportedly continued to travel southbound on Philadelphia Avenue until the vehicle failed to negotiate the turn at N. Division Street, struck the center median and collided with an electrical box. Police say the electrical box caught on fire and power was briefly disrupted to the south end of Ocean City. Traffic on route 50 was also allegedly disrupted, as officers closed eastbound and westbound movement for approximately 30 minutes due to the collision.

Police say Little was arrested by Ocean City police and charged with two counts of driving while under the influence, driving while impaired by alcohol, eluding uniformed police, and negligent and reckless driving in addition to multiple traffic citations. Reports say neither Little nor any officers were injured during this incident, and alcohol was determined to be a factor. Little was reportedly seen by a Maryland District Court Commissioner and released on $25,000 bond.
