BUCKHANNON — A man was clocked driving 110 mph on Route 33 after the Upshur County E-911 received a domestic violence call Sunday, and he faced more charges upon arriving at Tygart Valley Regional Jail.
Lee Andrew Beltran, 37, of Elkins, was ultimately arrested for reckless driving, domestic battery, bringing contraband into a state correctional facility and possession of a controlled substance.
Police say Beltran was the driver of a gold car that was identified in a domestic call on Route 33 traveling toward Buckhannon, according to the criminal complaint in the Upshur County Magistrate Clerk’s office.
Senior Trooper V.J. Pyles with the Buckhannon detachment of the West Virginia State Police spotted the vehicle and turned on his radar to determine Beltran was driving at 110 mph, according to the criminal complaint.
Pyles crossed the median and traveled west, attempting to intercept the vehicle. He had to travel 1.5 miles at a high rate of speed before he was able to initiate a traffic stop.
