Numerous counties in Northern Virginia, including Fairfax County, were affected on the morning of Wednesday, April 4th, when police officers found themselves in pursuit of a driver suspected of DUI as he fled across 30 miles of highway. The report, issued from Alex Kowalski, the spokesperson for the Loudoun County Sheriff's Department, indicated that the chase began on Route 15, close to Courtland Farm Lane, after a deputy with the department saw a green Subaru being driven in an erratic manner.
