Joshua Nuttall charged with eluding police

LOWER SAUCON TWP., Pa. - An Easton man is facing charges after police say he led officers on a chase through that spanned Lehigh and Northampton Counties.

Police say they spotted a vehicle driving suspiciously in the area of Black River Road and Old Philadelphia Pike in Lower Saucon Township on June 16th.

Officials ran the vehicle's registration and learned that the owner, Joshua Nuttall, 33, of Easton, had a suspended license.

Police got behind Nuttall on Route 378 and activated the siren, but they say Nuttall did not stop, and continued onto Center Valley Parkway, swerving as he drove.

Police say Nuttall turned into the Promenade Shops without stopping at stop signs. They also say he was driving on the wrong side of the road.

Nuttall eventually made his way back to Center Valley Parkway, and police were able to stop him.

Police say Nuttall said he didn't stop because his license was suspended.

He's been charged with fleeing and eluding police, along with several traffic citations.
