SALISBURY, Md. -- The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office says they have arrested a Salisbury man for driving under the influence, after tailgating police Wednesday afternoon.

Wicomico County authorities say at around 3:37 p.m., a deputy was traveling northbound on North Salisbury Blvd approaching Naylor Mill Rd, in an unmarked vehicle, when the deputy realized he was being tailgated by a male driver in a Chevrolet Pick-up truck. The deputy reported he could see the driver throwing up his hands in annoyance, before passing the deputy's vehicle and almost colliding with another car. When the driver turned onto Naylor Mill Road, police say the deputy attempted to stop him for a traffic stop, but the driver continued into the parking lot of Lowe's Home Improvement Store. The driver led the deputy on a chase back onto North Salisbury Road, at times speeding and leaving the travel lane to pass traffic. Upon arrival of additional police, the driver stopped the truck in the area of Zion Road and exited the vehicle with his hands up.

Police identified the driver as 51-year-old Michael Reynolds of Salisbury; the deputy detected an overwhelming odor of alcohol on Reynolds' breath. When the deputy searched the truck, a large open bottle of vodka was found nearly empty. The deputy also discovered that Reynolds' privilege to drive had been suspended and revoked in the state of Maryland. A passenger was with Reynolds at the time of the incident; they were on their way to the Detention Center on Naylor Mill Rd where the passenger was to report. It was presumed by police that's where Reynolds was giving the passenger a ride to.

Reynolds was arrested for DUI and attempting to flee. He was transported to Central Bookings where police say he has been processed and taken to the Detention Center in lieu of $10,000 bond.
