Suspect in domestic incident leads police om lengthy chase

CUMBERLAND — A Midland man was arrested late Sunday following a lengthy chase that extended from the Georges Creek area to Interstate 68 in Cumberland and nearby Ridgeley, W.Va., where he was arrested by Allegany County sheriff’s deputies without further incident.

It was shortly before 7 p.m. Sunday when deputies responded to a domestic violence complaint at a residence in the 17600 block of Old Dan’s Rock Road in Midland — at about the same time deputies were investigating a home invasion complaint in nearby Lonaconing.

No injuries were reported in the domestic complaint that reportedly involved a family situation. Police said Jason Seib, 37, drove from the area before police arrived. There were reports that Seib was possibly in possession of a firearm at that time.

Just before midnight, deputies were called back to Midland home when Seib reportedly returned to the area and then discharged a firearm in the area of his own vehicle but without directing the weapon at any person, police said.

As deputies responded, the suspect drove past them in the opposite direction on Old Dan’s Rock Road.

Deputies and Maryland State Police then encountered Seib, who was operating a late-model BMW.

He drove onto state Route 36 and Interstate 68 where he headed east into Cumberland. Seib then reportedly drove his vehicle into a sheriff’s department police cruiser before traveling into Ridgeley where he was blocked in on Main Street by police units and was arrested without further incident.

West Virginia State Police and the Mineral County Sheriff’s Department assisted at the scene.

Seib was taken into custody on charges of reckless driving and fugitive from justice. He remained jailed Monday afternoon at the Potomac Highlands Regional Jail in Augusta, W.Va., on bond of $10,900 set by a Mineral County magistrate. Seib will be returned to Allegany County pending extradition proceedings.
