“I approached the truck telling Wilson to stop the truck. Wilson did not comply ... and then looked at me and then the other way, accelerating his truck running over the traffic barrier, metal road closed sign with cones, continuing onto the closed North Alex Road,” an officer write in a statement of facts filed in municipal court.
According to court records, Wilson was accused of fleeing from police down Alex Road, where both sides of the road were lined with people watching fireworks.
Police estimated there were several hundred people in the area.
Wilson eventually stopped the truck on Terrence Court, where he came to a sliding stop in front of a woman sitting at the end of her driveway watching fireworks.
“Afterwards she told me she thought her life was over as she saw the truck coming toward her,” the officer wrote in court records.
Wilson ran into a yard and into a house without permission, then ran out the front door, where he was taken into custody by police.
