An 18-year-old man from Wilmington, Del., was arrested on Nov. 17 after he pursued another driver with his truck, tailgating and driving at a high rate of speed in the Landenberg area.

According to New Garden Township police, an off-duty officer at the New Garden police station heard tires squealing, engines racing and a continuous car horn at about 10:45 p.m. He went out to the parking lot and saw a Lincoln pickup truck tailgating a passenger car at a high speed. The cars left the lot and went north on Gap Newport Pike. The officer pursued them, and pulled the truck over in the 8800 block of Gap Newport Pike.

The driver of the car approached the officer and said the driver of the truck was trying to kill him. The driver of the truck, Fransisco Marin-Cruz, 18, showed signs of intoxication, and there were several open beer cans in the truck. He was arrested for DUI.

Later, Marin-Cruz admitted to following the victim because he wanted to talk about a domestic situation with a mutual female friend. He was charged with DUI, simple assault, stalking, disorderly conduct and related offenses. He was released pending a court appearance.
