EAST NEW MARKET, Md. – A Cambridge man is behind bars after he led police on a chase on Tuesday.

We’re told a deputy was called to the area of 4077 Hawkeye Road in East New Market for a reported breaking & entering and theft in progress. When the responding deputy approached the scene, the suspect was in the process of fleeing the scene and reportedly drove his vehicle at the victim and the deputy. The deputy then called for assistance, and a chase began, continuing through a large area in the northern part of Dorchester County.

During the chase, police say the suspect intentionally rammed three sheriff’s patrol vehicles. The chase ended on Route 392 near the intersection of Cokesbury Road, when a deputy reportedly performed a pit maneuver and spun the suspect off of the road.

The suspect, identified as 24-year-old McKinley Potter of Cambridge, was found to be wanted on seven outstanding warrants. He was arrested on these warrants and additionally charged with numerous traffic charges, two counts of fourth degree burglary, second degree burglary, three counts of malicious destruction of property over $1000, two counts of second degree assault, and reckless endangerment. He was held without bond.

Police say no one was injured in this incident.
