A Bridgeville man has been arrested following a brief chase in Harrington.
Harrington Police say Wednesday, 42-year-old Drew Ricketts was pulled over for a traffic violation on Hanley Street. Officers say Ricketts took off, but they caught up to him again in the parking lot of a business a short distance down the street. Police say they smelled alcohol on his breath, and also found an adult, a 15-year-old and a 1-year-old in the vehicle. The two children were released to the adult, who wasn’t charged.
Ricketts has been charged with driving under the influence, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child while driving under the influence, driving with a suspended or revoked license, and several other charges. Ricketts was released, and will have a later court date.
