Suspected Drunk Driver Leads Police on Chase in Maryland

After a traffic stop, giving a fake name, a car chase -- and deploying tire-deflation devices -- police in St. Mary's County, Maryland arrested a man suspected of driving drunk.

Police say 40-year-old Michael Anthony Green has been charged with driving while intoxicated, driving on a suspended license and other charges.

Police say officers received a call reporting a car wreck near Ridge, Maryland on Saturday morning and that the driver was "passed out.'' An officer responded to the scene and spoke to Green, who provided a fake name.

Police say the officer smelled alcohol and asked Green to step out of the car and he fled. A chase ensued but tire deflation devices successful disabled the car.

Police say Green still refused to leave the car and was forcibly extracted. He was taken to a local hospital with a facial injury.
