On Saturday, September 28, 2019, at approximately 8:30 p.m., a Matthews officer from the Patrol Division observed a vehicle traveling northbound on Matthews Mint Hill Rd., going well over the posted speed limit and crossing over the center line.  Due to these actions, the officer concerned that this could be an impaired driver, initiated his emergency equipment (Blue lights & Siren) to perform a traffic stop.  The driver of this vehicle refused to stop as he accelerated again after turning onto Hwy. 51 traveling northbound.  After turning onto Idlewild Rd., the suspect slammed on his brakes causing the pursuing officer to crash into him in the 13600 block.  There were no reported injuries or other vehicles involved in this incident.  The driver was identified as Mr. Marat Aleksandrovich Kockaryan (DOB – 03/25/1984) of Matthews and charged with the following:

Felony Fleeing to Elude;

Careless and Reckless Driving;

Speeding - 70 mph in a 35 mph zone;

Operating a vehicle on a street/highway in other than the proper lane.

Kockaryan, Marat Aleksandrovich (DOB - 03/25/1984)
