Dale Caison/Credit: FCPDA Dumfries man was arrested after he tried to flee from police at Reston Parkway and Sunset Hills Road Sunday night.

Police said officers observed a vehicle committing a traffic offense at the intersection and attempted to stop it. The driver failed to stop and a pursuit ensued.

Once the vehicle came to a stop the officer observed the driver and passenger switch seats. An investigation determined that Dale Caison of Dumfries was the driver of the vehicle during the pursuit.

Caison was arrested, taken to the adult detention center, and charged with speeding to elude and driving with a revoked license. The passenger, Elizabeth Bledsoe was arrested and charged with obstruction of justice.

Caison has a long list of previous drug, traffic and weapons charges in Prince William County, some stemming from a Manassas drug ring that led to the arrests of 25 people in 2011.

    I’m a bit startled by the picture. Normally, tattoos on the neck and dreadlocks indicate solid upstanding citizenry.

      You forgot an important accessory, the ear ring. The ear ring negates the fashion statement that implies spiritual conformity and denies outstanding collective achievement. Hence the ear ring can be seen as a symbol of antipositivism.

      This may or may not apply when the ear ring is won by female gender where it’s meaning is liable to be extinguished in face of modernity’s approved classification.

    Dammit, the old “switch seats with the passenger when I’m pulled over with the cop right behind me” maneuver usually works!

    What an upstanding member of society this individual looks to be….. Glad FFX PD was able to get this piece of garbage off the streets.

    This is why we need to build a wall between USA and Canada

    Well is doing a Chinese fire drill in front of a cop while the vehicle is still in motion a traffic offense?

    This woman appears in google to be the Vice President of sales and marketing at a company called metro offices. Interesting that these two actually thought switching drivers would work.
