Chase: According to state police, troopers found Glatfelter traveling east on West Gay Street in Red Lion about 2 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 25.

After police saw Glatfelter drive through a stop sign, responding trooper Stephen Meckley turned on his lights and sirens to pull Glatfelter over, charging documents state.

But Glatfelter didn't stop, and instead he fled, police said.

He took off east on East Gay Street at speeds of 100 mph, and he continued onto West Main Street in Windsor, officials said.

He traveled through a red light and continued east on Craley Road, in Lower Windsor Township, according to court documents.

Police say Glatfelter navigated multiple right and left hand curves in the opposing travel lane at high rates of speed. 

Glatfelter turned right onto Spring Hollow Road and continued east, going through two stop signs, and then turned right onto Snyder Corner Road, where Glatfelter eventually pulled over, charging documents state.

Pulled over: Meckley pulled up alongside the vehicle to prevent Glatfelter from fleeing the vehicle, officials said.

Police say Glatfelter and his passenger were taken into custody. When speaking to police, Glatfelter immediately admitted that he was the one driving the car, charging documents state.

He told authorities that he is on probation and his license is suspended, which is why he didn't pull over, according to police.

Additionally, police say he told them he smoked marijuana and had marijuana and drug paraphernalia in his car. Police searched his car and found marijuana, charging documents indicate.

According to officials, his passenger repeatedly told Glatfelter to stop, but he wouldn't. 

Glatfelter was taken to the county's central booking unit, and he had his blood drawn, charging documents state.

He remains in York County Prison in lieu of $50,000 bail. He does not have an attorney listed.

His preliminary hearing is scheduled for Oct. 3 at District Judge John H. Fishel's office.
