HARRINGTON — A Lincoln man was arrested Tuesday morning after leading Delaware State Police on a chase in the Harrington area.
About 9 a.m. Tuesday, Delaware State Police were in the area to back up Harrington Police Department on a domestic incident that occurred in Clarks Corner Apartments, state police said.

A trooper spotted Tyrell M. Waters, 24 of Lincoln, who was wanted by Harrington Police and Dover Police for domestic assaults as he was exiting Friendship Village off West Street and attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the silver 1999 Mercedes Benz, state police said.

The suspect refused to stop and continued through Harrington and across U.S. 13 onto Carpenter Bridge Road. He continued northeast on Carpenter Bridge Road before turning southbound on Jackson Ditch Road where he crashed into a 2016 Ford Fusion being operated by a 27-year-old Milford man in the area of Lillian Drive.

The suspect exited his vehicle, which caught on fire, and fled into some nearby woods where he was finally taken into custody after a brief struggle with troopers.

Tyrell Waters was transported to Bayhealth Milford Memorial Hospital where he was treated for minor injuries.

He was then taken to Troop 3 in Camden where he was charged by troopers for resisting arrest with force (felony), disregarding a police officer’s signal (felony), offensive touching of a law enforcement officer, and reckless driving.

After arraignment, he was committed to James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $5,001.00 secured bond.
