CAMBRIDGE, Md.- Authorities say a Virginia man is facing numerous assault and related charges after he led police on a high-speed chase through Dorchester and Talbot counties in Maryland.

The Dorcester County Sheriff's Office reported that on Thursday deputies were called to the area of Old Madison Road in Madison, after receiving information that a pickup truck, which had been taken and used in a burglary and theft on Tuesday, was back in the area.

When deputies arrived they located the pickup and attempted to stop it. They said the driver, identified as 47-year-old Scott Edwin Osborne of Alexandria, Va., was wanted on an outstanding felony warrant in connection with a crime that occurred on Tuesday. The sheriff's office said Osborne failed to stop
and accelerated, then led the deputies on a chase from Madison toward Cambridge.

When the chase entered Cambridge, members of the Cambridge Police Department joined in and the pursuit continued through Cambridge and onto westbound Route 50 across the Malkus Bridge and into Talbot County. Maryland State Police and the Talbot County Sheriff’s Office then joined the chase in an effort to get the pickup to stop.

The sheriff's office said that on Route 50 north of Trappe, the pickup veered through the median strip and started back toward Cambridge.

Authorities said when the pickup came off of the Malkus Bridge a Cambridge police officer deployed Stop Sticks and was able to deflate two of the pickup's tires. The truck then continued to the intersection of Route 50 and Cedar Street where Osborne was taken into custody. A shotgun was located inside of the pickup, according to investigators.

Osborne has been charged with two counts of reckless endangerment, two counts of first-degree assault, two counts of second-degree assault, being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, fourth-degree burglary, theft under $100, four counts of theft under $1,000, theft over $10,000 but under $100,000, theft over $1,000 but under $10,000 and unlawful taking of a motor vehicle. He was ordered held on $200,000 bond on the burglary and theft charges and $500,000 bond on the assault charges.

There were no reported injuries during the incident, according to the sheriff's office.
