Nominate West Virginia Lock Up in the Best New and Best Law Blogs

The 2009 Weblog Awards
Whoever happens to stop by this blog may wonder why I started it. Whenever I read news stories online I always like to put a face to the story. So I got to thinking maybe other people would as well. I always keep up on WV news and most stories don't have the mugshots with them so I hunt them up online and post them with the story. It's not that hard and I don't know why the state news sites don't do it

Drunk driver runs from police

A suspect is in Charleston Police custody after leading police on a chase.

The chase started just before 10 this morning when the driver a stolen vehicle, Ezra Lambert, headed down I-64 West out of Charleston.

South Charleston Police LT. Hugh Leishman tried to block Lambert on MacCorkle Avenue, but even that didn't work. Leishman says the suspect rammed into his cruiser before continuing on.

A Charleston Officer put out spikes in an attempt to flatten Lambert's tires.

The chase came to an end just past Kanawha Turnpike.

Lambert was taken into custody.

Police tell Eyewitness News Lambert was drunk and on parole. Now, he is facing charges of fleeing DUI causing injury.
