Man eludes police twice

by Nick Delgado

Guam – Jay Walter, 26, was arrested after he allegedly stole a vehicle Wednesday in upper Tumon, but he didn't go willingly. According to Superior court documents, Walter was allegedly speeding and driving recklessly through Tumon in a white Lexus when he hit a GPD patrol car. That's when a high-speed chase began heading up towards route 1, and then south towards airport road. Court documents state Walter then lost control and struck a power pole in Tamuning. He refused medical treatment. As he was being escorted in handcuffs inside the Tamuning precinct, court documents state Walter was able to break away from the officer and fled on foot. After chasing him once more, police took him to the ground and Walter allegedly started to kick the officer still trying to escape. It was then police discovered the vehicle he was driving was stolen while the victim was using an ATM in upper Tumon. He was charged with theft of a motor vehicle, eluding police, escape, resisting arrest, reckless driving and leaving the scene of an accident.
