A Centreville man faces multiple charges after he tailgated and struck a Lorton driver twice on the Fairfax County Parkway, then sped away from the state troopers who tried to arrest him, police said.
Juan Carlos Gudiel, 25, first rear-ended the 2003 Honda with his 2000 Ford Explorer early Sunday, Fairfax County Police said. He then sped away—but not before the victim, a 24-year-old Lorton man, copied the license plate number and called 911.
Virginia State Police chased Gudiel down I-66, and then onto Lee Highway. He reportedly ran a red light as he turned onto Stone Road. At that point, troopers were able to force him to stop.
State Police charged Gudiel with reckless driving speeding to elude, disregarding a red light, resisting arrest and driving under the influence. Fairfax County officers charged Gudiel with attempted malicious wounding, felony hit and run and driving on a suspended license. He remains in custody at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center.
