Police say a 31-year-old Herndon man crashed into two HPD vehicles, injuring one officer, as he attempted to avoid arrest last Wednesday.

According to a police report, Trevor John Herasingh Jr. is accused of assaulting a woman in the 600 block of Center Street. The woman, who knew Herasingh, suffered minor abrasions and bruising, but declined medical attention.

That’s when, police say:

“Officers located Mr. Herasingh in the parking lot, and ordered him to stop. He refused to comply, walked away, and entered his vehicle. He then backed his vehicle up, and side-swiped a police vehicle as he fled. A short pursuit ensued that ended when he drove head-on into another police vehicle stopped in the parking lot. Herasingh then exited his vehicle, and continued to act in an aggressive manner towards officers until he was subdued by the officers and taken into custody.”

Herasingh and an HPD officer both suffered minor injuries in the collision, according to the report.

Herasingh was charged with assault, strangulation, reckless driving, and two counts each of aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer and destruction of property. He was taken to Fairfax County Adult Detention Center and held without bond.

    “Herndon man” is starting to become synonymous with something… I just can’t put my finger on it.

      You mean in the criminal context, right? Not like winning Jeopardy or something like that.

    Wait, “strangulation” is a specific crime? As opposed to just another of the many, many flavors of assault and battery?
