A Pittsburgh man fleeing a traffic stop in Dauphin County was arrested in Cumberland County after leading State Police on a pursuit on the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

State Police at Harrisburg said the incident started at 9:22 a.m. Thursday when troopers attempted to stop David Andrew Williams, 20, of Pittsburgh, who they said was driving a 2017 BMW iX that had been determined to be stolen.

Police attempted to stop Williams on I-283 in Swatara Township, but Williams did not stop and drove onto the turnpike.

Troopers deployed spike strips which caused a tire on the car to deflate. Williams then tried to run from police, but was caught after a short chase near mile marker 236.1 on the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Cumberland County.

Williams was returned to Dauphin County where he remains in county prison on $50,000 bail. He faces charges of receiving stolen property, fleeing or attempting to elude officers, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, recklessly endangering another person, resisting arrest and flight to avoid apprehension in addition to a number of summary charges related to the chase itself.
