Man Convicted In 3-State Chase In Tractor Trailer

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — A Mississippi man who led police on a chase up Interstate 81 through parts of West Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania has been convicted on four counts of second-degree assault and other offenses.

A Washington County judge announced the verdict Tuesday for Thomas L. McNeel, 43, of Pontotoc, Miss. A sentencing date has not been set.

The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown reports that the charges stem from the chase on Dec. 20, 2010, up Interstate 81 that began in Berkeley County, W.Va., and passed through Washington County before ending near Exit 5 in Franklin County, Pa.
