DEARBORN — A Dearborn man was arrested at 12:34 a.m. Jan. 13 after driving 100 mph on both Ford and Greenfield roads and running repeated red lights, jeopardizing other drivers.
The man, who was driving a black 2015 Chevy Equinox, was first spotted by a police officer when westbound on Ford Road, two blocks east of Schaefer Road. The high-speed driver almost caused two other vehicles to collide five blocks east of Chase Road, where he subsequently ran a red light. The officer lost visual contact when the man exited Ford Road onto southbound Greenfield Road.
Another police officer, who was northbound on Greenfield Road, south of Michigan Avenue, saw the driver of the Equinox run a red light at Michigan Avenue while southbound on Greenfield Road. After the driver shot past him at a high rate of speed, the officer made a U-turn, activated the lights and sirens, and initiated pursuit. The driver finally pulled into a retail parking lot at Greenfield Road and Rotunda Drive.
The man refused to provide any information on scene or during booking. His vehicle was impounded, and he was taken to the police station, where he was charged with reckless driving and failure to cooperate during booking, and held, pending bond.
