Dewey Beach police have arrested a Pennsylvania fugitive who fled from officers near Bethany Beach and Dewey Beach. Police say 42-year-old Ramiro Pereira of Bethlehem, Pa., was driving south on Coastal Highway early Friday morning when he almost hit an officer working an unrelated traffic stop.

Bethany Beach police put down spike strips but Pereira, who was allegedly swerving back and forth, turned to avoid them. At one point police say Pereira stopped, but took off as officers approached his car.

After Pereira nearly hit an Ocean View officer's car head-on, police say he was stopped and taken into custody.
