Crick charged Jeremy Gidcumb, 23, with failure to signal, reckless driving, first-degree fleeing or evading police/motor vehicle, second-degree fleeing or evading police/foot, DUI – first offense, failure to produce insurance card, disregarding a stop sign, first-degree wanton endangerment and third-degree criminal trespassing.

Gidcumb was also charged on a parole violation warrant and a bench warrant. He is being held in the Muhlenberg County Detention Center.
