CAMDEN, Del.- Authorities say a New Jersey man faces 37 traffic charges and other offenses following a Tuesday morning high-speed chase in a stolen truck through Dover and Camden.

According to Dover police, officers responded to the 200 block of East Sheldrake Circle in the Cannon Mills community on the west side of Dover for a “welfare check.” An officer saw a woman at the home and determined there may have been a domestic-related issue. When the officer attempted to talk to Omar Davis, 38, he ran toward the back of the neighborhood and into a construction site next to Dover High School, police said.

Officers said Davis got into a 2011 Ford F-250 truck belonging to Dixie Construction and led officers through Dover, at times reaching speeds of 90 miles per hour. Police said the pickup struck several vehicles and at least three accidents resulted in Dover and Camden. While traveling southbound on Route 13, Davis drove into oncoming traffic in the area of Lakeview Drive and struck the side of a vehicle, police said. In the area of the Camden Lowe’s and Diamond Motorsports, officers said Davis rear-ended a minivan driven by a Dover woman.

Police said Davis attempted to run from officers, but was apprehended by a Dover Police Department K-9. The woman operating the minivan was taken to Bayhealth Kent General Hospital where she was treated and released, police said.

Shortly after Davis was taken into custody, police said they discovered that he was wanted by Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office for failure to appear on an eluding police charge. Police also found 44.9 grams of marijuana in the home where Davis was staying. Police said Davis also damaged a hospital room window while being treated at Bayhealth Kent General Hospital for wounds related to the K-9 apprehension.

Davis is charged with theft of a motor vehicle, disregarding police officer signal, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, second-degree reckless endangering, second-degree vehicular assault, criminal mischief, resisting arrest, fugitive from another state, and 37 various traffic charges relating to the pursuit and accidents that Davis was involved in.

Davis was ordered held in default of $18,350 secured bond.
