PARKVILLE, Md. — A 23-year-old man was arrested and charged after leading police on a chase along the outer loop of I-695 Tuesday morning, Maryland Police said.

At about 7:40 a.m., a trooper stopped a green Buick that was traveling on the I-695 outer loop at Perring Parkway in Parkville, police said. The 23-year-old driver, later identified as Don Trey Busship Lee George, of Baltimore, provided the trooper a false name. After checking the false credentials, when the trooper returned to the Buick, George drove off, heading to the ramp onto Perring Parkway.

Once George drove onto Perring Parkway, he exited his car and took off on foot towards the rear of the Perring Plaza shopping center, police said. Additional troopers, as well as personnel from the Baltimore County Police and the Office of the Maryland State Fire Marshal, responded to search for George.

George was later found on the rear roof of one of the buildings in the shopping center, police said, but he jumped off and attempted to flee again. Police apprehended him a short time later.

A deputy state fire Marshall was transported by ambulance to Greater Baltimore Medical Center for treatment of injuries he sustained in pursuit of George, police said.

George was charged with providing a false name, fleeing and eluding law enforcement, driving on a suspended license and driving without a license, police said. He was taken to the Maryland State Police Golden Ring Barrack for processing.
