Demorio Torres Ross Pictuture

A West End man was jailed Tuesday night after attempting to flee from a Pinehurst Police Officer during a traffic stop.

Pinehurst Police attempted to stop 36 year old Demorio Torres Ross from a Swain Lane address in West End for speeding just before 11:30 pm.

According to Pinehurst Police Chief Earl Phipps Mr. Ross initially pulled over for the officer making the traffic stop, however when the officer exited his patrol car Ross drove away fleeing from the scene.

After an extended pursuit where he reportedly ran stop signs and passed vehicles in no passing zones, Ross was eventually taken into custody at the home of a relative on Person Road in Eagle Springs.

The same man had fled from Pinehurst officers a week earlier on August 28, 2017 resulting in additional charges when he was arrested tonight. This previous pursuit was called off before catching the fleeing man for the safety of the public due to the high volume of traffic at the time according to Chief Phipps.

Ross was charged with two counts flee/elude arrest, two counts driving while license revoked, and two counts of speeding. He was transported to the Moore County Detention Center in Carthage where he was held under a $35,000.00 secure bond. His first scheduled date in court is on September 26, 2017.

All defendants facing criminal charges are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty in a court of law.

This was the second night in a row that a driver has tried to flee from a Pinehurst officer during a traffic stop resulting in an arrest.
