A Maryland man faces a host of charges, including DUI and fleeing and attempting to elude, after he allegedly fled on an ATV from a state trooper in Delta on Saturday.
Kevin Troy Aull, 39, of Forest Hill, is also charged with tampering with evidence and was cited with 11 traffic violations, including careless driving and reckless driving, according to documents.
He is free on $10,000 unsecured bail.
A state trooper spotted a man later identified as Aull driving an ATV on Broad Street Extended at Watson Road about 8 p.m. and attempted to stop him for allegedly not wearing eye protection, which is required by state law, according to Aull's charging documents.
Fled: When the trooper turned on his police cruiser's emergency lights and siren, Aull allegedly fled at a high rate of speed.
According to the documents, Aull turned left across a lane of travel and in front of a number of vehicles on Broad Street Extended, "causing a dangerous situation" for the motorists.
Aull then took the ATV off-road near a cornfield and the trooper lost sight of it.
But the trooper soon saw the ATV again as Aull steered it through a yard in the 200 block of North Avenue, documents state.
A pedestrian pointed out the home in the block where Aull was staying, adding Aull had been riding the ATV through the borough all day, documents state.
At the house, the trooper spoke with Aull's wife, Lisa Nora Aull, who called her husband and told him to come home because she "did not want to get caught up in the incident."
Home again: Aull returned a short time later without the ATV. Aull, who smelled of alcohol and had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech, told the trooper he took the ATV to the home of a friend who owns the ATV, documents state.
Aull underwent a number of field sobriety tests, during which he showed "signs of impairment," documents state.
The trooper took Aull to York Hospital for a blood-alcohol test and then to central booking to be arraigned.
