Troopers: Car chase ends with arrest at Wilmington man’s home
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A Wilmington man faces several charges this morning after troopers say he led them on a car chase that ended at his home.
Troopers say the chase started just before 10 last night when a trooper took off after a 1995 Ford Thunderbird on Carolina Beach Road near St. Andrews Drive. That’s when they say the driver, Ricky Wallace, Jr., 21, led Trooper B.R. Phillips down Raleigh and Williamson Streets before speeding down Shipyard Blvd.
Troopers say the chase only lasted about 10 minutes when Wallace stopped at his home on Calhoun Street, where he was then arrested. Wallace faces several charges, including DWI and eluding arrest, among drug charges.
He is in the New Hanover County Jail under $5,000 bond. Stay with WWAY for more on this story.
