Three arrested after early-morning pursuit

ST. PETERSBURG — Police took three people into custody Monday after they led officers on an early morning pursuit in a stolen car.

Darrell Antonio Carter, 36, Bryan Michael Vicario, 23, and Chad Springer, 22 were all charged in connection with the incident.

About 3:20 a.m., officers spotted a blue 2014 Volkswagen Jetta driving near 18th Avenue S and 14th Street. They recognized the car as one that was reported missing from an Eden Isle Boulevard NE home last week.

The owner told police he may have left spare keys in the car.

Police tried to stop the stolen Jetta near 20th Avenue S and 15th Street, but Carter, the driver, failed to yield and tried to ram a canine officer's cruiser, police said. A pursuit was authorized and lasted about 10 minutes, until the driver lost control and struck an unoccupied parked vehicle in the driveway of 3001 22nd Ave. S.

Carter was charged with aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, aggravated fleeing and eluding, auto theft, driving with a suspended license and possession of marijuana. He was being held in the Pinellas County Jail on $5,500 bond.

Vicario and Springer were charged with trespassing in a conveyance and possession of marijuana. The were booked into the Pinellas County jail on $400 bond.
