Narrative: The Dover Police Department arrested an 18-year-old male early Monday morning following a brief vehicle pursuit. At approximately 12:17 a.m., officers responded to the area of Lexington Place and Nicholas Drive in reference to several subjects being loud. Officers attempted to contact the group at which time the subjects began entering vehicles and attempted to leave. When officers attempted to contact Jemeire Perry, he fled in his vehicle, nearly striking one of the officers on scene. Perry was taken into custody without incident at the conclusion of a brief vehicle pursuit. After speaking with Perry it was determined that he was under the influence and a blood search warrant was obtained and executed at Bayhealth Kent Campus.

Perry was released on an O.R. Bond on the following charges:
-Reckless Endangering 2nd Degree
-Reckless Driving
-Driving Under the Influence

In addition to Perry’s charges a female passenger was given a civil citation for possession of a small amount of marijuana. Two other occupants were released with no charges.
