According to the Talbot County Sheriff's Office, shortly before noon deputies tried to stop a motor vehicle on Black Dog Alley near Kings Meadow Place in Easton for a moving violation.
The vehicle, identified as a 2009 Pontiac G6, pulled to the shoulder of the road but sped off when the deputy approached on foot, police said.
