An Ashburn man was charged with drunken and reckless driving after a police pursuit early Saturday morning. 

Around 2 a.m. Saturday, a sheriff’s deputy initiated a traffic stop of a vehicle on Belmont Ridge Road near Hay Road in Ashburn. The driver refused to stop and a pursuit continued for several miles when deputies were able to place  stop sticks on the road  in area of Waxpool Road and the Dulles Greenway, according to the sheriff's office report.

After losing tire pressure, the driver, Martin J. Mahnken, 33, lost control of his vehicle and crashed.

He was taken into custody and charged with DUI and reckless driving-disregarding a signal to stop.

Welcome to the discussion.
