Virginia State Police say shortly after 3 p.m. Saturday, troopers stopped a Dodge Charger whose driver was wanted by the local police. As the officer was taking the driver into custody, the passenger of the car took control of the wheel and sped off.

Police identified the driver as 33-year-old Anthony McCrae of Washington. He is being held on outstanding warrants from Arlington and Prince William counties. Additional charges are pending.
