According to police updates by the Prince William County police department, an Arlington man allegedly led the Prince William County Police on a short pursuit on Sunday, July 25, 2011.

The police arrested and charged this man with driving under the influence in Virginia; however, this arrest does not indicate a conviction at this time.

Police said that Alejandro Juan Arellano, of 1000 block of Arlington Boulevard in Arlington, ignored their flashing lights and led them on a short car chase. Prince William County Police spokesman Jonathan Perok said that the officers attempted to pull Arellano's car over on Dale Boulevard near Forestdale Plaza; however, Arellano continued to drive.

Police said that Arenallo ignored their sirens and flashing lights for a short time, but later pulled over near Cloverdale Road. Police claim that Arellano continued to ignore their commands, which is why they arrested him.

This 26-year-old driver was charged with a Virginia DUI, felony eluding and driving without a driver's license.
There is no further information on Arellano's bond information or court date at this time.
