Police: Man arrested for DUI after fleeing from police in Salisbury


SALISBURY, Md. – A Snow Hill man is behind bars for DUI and other related charges following a chase through downtown Salisbury late Tuesday night.

At around 11:50 p.m., a trooper observed a red Mazda driving recklessly, crossing over the solid double yellow centerline on Lake Street. The trooper tried to stop the vehicle, but the driver failed to stop and led the trooper on a short chase through downtown Salisbury. The driver then reportedly got out of the vehicle and fled on foot across Route 50 before being caught by troopers.

The driver, identified as 39-year-old Damien Jackson, initially resisted arrest but was eventually taken into custody. Troopers detected signs of impairment, and Jackson admitted to consuming alcoholic beverages. It was also discovered that Jackson had an active warrant for assault and was also in possession of marijuana.

Jackson was held without bond at the Wicomico County Detention Center after being charged with DUI related offenses, as well as resisting arrest and eluding police officers.
