Salisbury man convicted of DWI, other charges

SALISBURY, Md. – A Salisbury man was convicted on multiple charges including DWI earlier this week.

68-year-old Asie Junior Bell Perkins was convicted of driving while impaired by alcohol, failure to yield right of way, negligent driving, and driving a motor vehicle with alcohol in the blood in violation of a restriction.

The charges date back to June 2, 2018, when Maryland State Police responded to Route 50 and Naylor Mill Road for a two vehicle collision. Perkins, who was one of the drivers involved, fled the scene on foot and was found hiding in a nearby field. No one was injured in the accident.

Perkins was sentenced to three years in the Department of Corrections. Officials also say Perkins has five previous alcohol related driving convictions.
