Fleeing and Eluding Charges in Maryland
Have you been charged with fleeing and eluding in the state of Maryland? Statutes require police vehicles to be ‘appropriately marked’ in order to be charged and convicted of fleeing and eluding charges. The issue is discussed in Williams v. State, in which the court found that a police vehicle must bear appropriate insignia that identifies it as an official police vehicle. It is not sufficient for an unmarked police vehicle to use ‘emergency equipment,’ such as lights or sirens, as a way of marking the vehicle.
