On February 6 at 8:04 p.m. Dep. S. Moran was dispatched to Gunsmoke Trail at Sitting Bull Trail in Lusby for the report of a vehicle crash.  Upon arrival he located a vehicle that appeared to have crossed the center line, left the roadway and gone into a yard.  It had come to rest on top of a large rock with the rear tires not touching the ground.  Moran made contact with a nearby resident who advised he had heard the crash and offered assistance to the driver.  He stated the driver was bleeding and appeared disoriented.  He helped the driver from the vehicle but said the driver fled when he saw Moran approaching them.  Moran canvassed the area and located a male matching the description given sitting against a shed behind a home on Gunsmoke Court.  He ordered the subject to put his hands up.  The subject showed his left hand but not right.  He then made a quick abrupt motion toward Moran, as if throwing something at him, with his right hand.  Moran observed the subject’s hand to be empty and ordered him to get flat on the ground.  The subject turned and ran behind the shed, where he fell, got back on his feet and took off running in the direction of the residence.  Moran took the subject to the ground, where the subject rolled over and made a motion as if attempting to strike.  He was subdued by Moran, handcuffed and walked back to the area of the crash. Moran detected a strong odor of alcohol emitting from the subject.  He was identified as James Robert Nelson, 30, of Lusby.  Nelson refused treatment by EMS on the scene.  He has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, reckless driving, negligent driving, resisting arrest, attempting to elude law enforcement, possession of marijuana and numerous other traffic violations.
