TOWSON -- One man was charged with auto theft yesterday in connection with a multiple car chase that sprawled across two interstates and several county roads Wednesday and ended with a suspect shot by police.

Antoine Brisco Roy, 22, of the 5600 block of Norwood Ave., was held on $15,000 bail after Wednesday's car chase. Roy was a passenger in an Isuzu Trooper, listed as stolen, that led county and state police on a lengthy chase.

The chase ended near Reisterstown, when a Baltimore County police officer shot and wounded the driver of the Isuzu. That man, who is at Maryland Shock Trauma Center, has not been charged or identified by police.

Absentees give Minnick, Arnick added primary edge


DUNDALK -- The razor-thin vote margin that appeared to preserve the political careers of Dels.John S. Arnick and Joseph J. "Sonny" Minnick on Tuesday got a tad thicker yesterday, after absentee ballots were counted.

Arnick -- who won re-election in 1990 by a six-vote margin over Minnick -- padded his 12-vote unofficial lead over William C. Batton in Tuesday's primary with 72 absentee votes, compared with Batton's 69. That left him 15 votes ahead of Batton.

Minnick, with 73 absentee votes, is now 114 votes ahead of Arnick in the 7th District. Fellow incumbent Jacob J. Mohorovic Jr. led all others in the Democratic primary, in which the top three finishers will face three Republican challengers in November. The official count is today.

Planning Board approves St. Timothy's development


STEVENSON -- St. Timothy's Bridle Ridge Development passed another hurdle yesterday, winning approval from the county Planning Board, which found that the proposed housing development would not harm historic structures near the project.

The development plan for the project, which calls for 53 homes on the 90-acre site near the school, is scheduled to go before the county hearing officer Sept. 29.

Although neighbors had opposed the development, which originally called for 64 homes, the school and community have reached an agreement on a scaled-back project.
