Salisbury man arrested for DUI after leading police on pursuit

SALISBURY, Md. – A Salisbury man was arrested late last week after he led police on a chase.

Just before midnight on June 4th, a deputy tried to stop a vehicle after clocking the driver on radar driving at 94 mph in a 35 mph zone on South Boulevard. Instead of immediately stopping, the driver, later identified as 25-year-old Josniel Cisnero, continued southbound before appearing to stop in the middle of the intersection with Vine Street. As the deputy approached the vehicle, Cisnero took off again, leading the deputy southbound on South Salisbury Boulevard while driving erratically and all over the road.

The deputy pursued Cisnero into a parking lot in the 700 block of South Salisbury Boulevard, at which point Cisnero got out of his vehicle and began walking away while ignoring the deputy’s instructions to stop. The deputy was able to prevent Cisnero from leaving the scene and took him into custody, at which point the deputy observed multiple signs suggesting that Cisnero was under the influence of alcohol.

Cisnero was subsequently arrested following field sobriety testing. He was charged with DUI, attempt to elude police, driving without a license, aggressive driving, reckless driving, and negligent driving.
