A man was arrested Friday morning in Leesburg after allegedly committing several traffic violations, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies were on patrol near the intersection of Riverside Parkway and Heatherstone Terrace around 12:01 a.m. when they reportedly saw a vehicle make two illegal U-turns and run two red lights.
Authorities say the vehicle sped up and continued to drive after the deputies initiated a traffic stop, though the driver eventually stopped.
Emmanuel S. Yao, 23, of Leesburg, was charged with fleeing and eluding as well as reckless driving.
Yao was being held without bond at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center as of Monday afternoon, per the LCSO.
