SALISBURY, Md.– A Crisfield man is facing a slew of charges after leading sheriff’s deputies on a high-speed chase that at one point went through a Salisbury shopping center.

According to the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office, on Nov. 23 a deputy attempted to stop 33-year-old Pierre Whittington on U.S. 13. Authorities said that rather than stop, Whittington exited onto westbound Rt. 50 Business and headed toward Salisbury. The sheriff's office said that while trying to elude the deputy, Whittington drove his car into the Food Lion shopping center, reaching speeds upwards of 40 mph.

Authorities said Whittington then drove to the rear of the shopping center, got out of the vehicle and took off on foot where he was captured near the 200 block of Phillip Morris Drive.

Whittington faces numerous charges, including attempting to flee and elude, reckless endangerment and driving with a suspended license. He was ordered held in the Wicomico County Detention Center in lieu of $10,000 bond.
