DOVER, Del. – Troopers with Delaware State Police arrested a Lincoln man on numerous charges after he reportedly led them on a chase late Sunday night.
At around 10 p.m. troopers were called to Bay Road in the area of Exit 91 for reports of a red Ford Ranger traveling northbound in the southbound lanes on Bay Road. A trooper located the vehicle traveling the wrong way and tried to initiate a traffic stop, but the driver failed to stop.
