A Maryland man who led Southern Regional Police on a chase that ended at his home had to be subdued with a stun gun early Wednesday morning, according to police.

Terrance Reid Hunt, 61, of 1755 Oakland Drive in Freeland, Md., was driving through New Freedom when, about 12:40 a.m., the officer noticed the silver Hyundai Santa Fe he was driving quickly accelerated and crossed the center yellow line of West Main Street, according to Hunt's charging documents.

The officer turned on his police cruiser's sirens and emergency lights, but Hunt refused to stop, documents state.

The chase wasn't exactly high speed, with Hunt reaching speeds of 35 to 45 mph, the documents say.

With the officer still in pursuit, Hunt drove onto a private drive in Baltimore County and stopped in front of his home, less than two miles from where the officer initially attempted to stop him, documents state.

Stun gun: The officer ordered Hunt from the SUV, but he refused, documents state.

According to the documents, the officer smelled a strong odor of alcohol coming from the SUV when he opened its driver's side door.

When Hunt finally got out, the officer attempted to arrest him, but Hunt allegedly pulled away, and the officer subdued him with a stun gun, documents state.

An ambulance was called, but Hunt refused treatment. He told EMTs he didn't stop because he hadn't done anything wrong, documents say.


Hunt was taken to the county's central booking unit, where he was arraigned on charges of fleeing and eluding and DUI and cited for driving offenses, according to documents.

He is free on $7,500 bail, according to the York County Sheriff's Office.
