Man who led Md. chase was driving stolen car

Dan Morse

The case of a 19-year old who led Montgomery County police on a chase Tuesday morning is getting more interesting.

Turns out, police say, the man had been released from custody -- on a different set of charges -- just four hours earlier, and was driving a stolen car.

"He was a busy guy," said Cpl. Dan Friz, a police spokesman.

The suspect, Kairee D. Dorsey, had been arrested Monday and charged with littering, having alcohol in a prohibited place, failing to obey a police officer and resisting arrest, according to Friz and online court records.

The officer in that matter took him to a court commissioner, who released Dorsey on his own recognizance early Tuesday, Friz said.

Fast forward to about 4 a.m. Tuesday, when Montgomery County officer M. Kwarciany was operating a speed laser on Interstate 270 in the Germantown area and zapped a Toyota Camry sailing by at 105 mph, Friz said.

Kwarciany hit the lights, pursued him, got the Camry to stop, got out and walked up to the car. "The guy looks out and sees an officer and just takes off," Friz said.

The Camry flipped over and smashed into the woods at the 118 exit ramp, at which point the 19-year-old bailed out, Friz said. A police dog eventually found him.

Although the suspect wasn't admitted to a hospital, he was treated in an emergency room and found to be okay, Friz said. A blood sample, which could play into any charges of driving under the influence if they are filed, was taken, according to Friz.

Original text: A 19-year-old driver speeding away from police in Montgomery County on Tuesday morning crashed his Toyota Camry, got out on foot, and eventually was found by a police dog, according to authorities.

An officer first spotted the speeding motorist about 4:20 a.m. on Route 27 near Interstate 270 in the Germantown area, said Cpl. Dan Friz, a police spokesman.

At least one officer pursued him in his cruiser, but the Camry driver lost control and crashed into a wooded area, Friz said.

Officers who looked into his car found blood but no driver, according to Friz.

Shortly after 5 a.m., a police dog found the driver hiding in a culvert. Paramedics looked at him, but his injuries were apparently not bad enough for hospitalization.

Friz said that as of 6:45 a.m., the Camry driver was in a district police station in Germantown with charges pending.

"4:20"?...that's too easy.

There must be some kind of mistake!

According to the court records, Mr. Dorsey has been arrested for the same thing in the past!

Oh, how can this be!

If convicted, he is in need of a substantial sentence. He is an aggressive predator with no regard for the life or well being of any person.

Our judicial system is so messed up, they rather put life of innocent at risk than put these nutjobs behind bars. Another one of them riding suv killed an innocent person on sidewalk when he lost control of his suv.
