January 10, 2003

An 18-year-old Laurel man was charged with aggressive driving and other traffic offenses after a Carroll County sheriff's deputy was led on a chase on Interstate 70 between Mount Airy and Woodbine, authorities said yesterday.

A sheriff's deputy saw a 1996 Honda speeding and weaving through traffic early Wednesday afternoon. When the deputy tried to stop the car, the driver sped east on I-70 at up to 130 mph, the sheriff's office said.

The car left the highway at the Woodbine Road exit, where it slid into a ditch.

Christopher Brian Hosler was held in lieu of $10,000 bail at the Carroll County Detention Center and is charged with aggressive driving, speeding, following too closely, eluding a police officer, unsafe lane changing, negligent driving, improper passing and unauthorized tinting of car windows, authorities said.
