Loudoun County, VA (July 24, 2023) – The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) has arrested a New York man after he committed multiple felony offenses.

On Saturday, July 22, 2023, at approximately 8:24 a.m. deputies responded to the Sheetz gas station at 45555 Dulles Plaza in Sterling, for a report of two adults passed out in a vehicle.  Deputies approached the vehicle and viewed suspected drugs and drug paraphernalia inside the vehicle.  The driver of the vehicle regained consciousness and put the vehicle in drive, nearly striking two deputies.

The driver continued to flee from deputies, driving on Shaw Road and turning onto Sterling Boulevard.  In the area of Maple Avenue, the driver drove the vehicle Northbound in the Southbound lanes of Sterling Boulevard and struck multiple vehicles.  The driver was immediately apprehended.  

 Upon investigating, deputies discovered that the vehicle was reported stolen out of New York.  The driver also hindered the investigation by providing false information.

 A total of four people were transported to area hospitals for treatment of their injuries including the driver and passenger of the fleeing vehicle.  A deputy was also treated at an area hospital after being bitten by a dog that was in the fleeing vehicle.   

 Justin Connor, 27, of Rochester, NY, was charged with:

  • Driving While Intoxicated (Influence of Drugs) 
  • Maiming of another resulting from driving while intoxicated
  • Two counts of assault on law enforcement
  • Giving false identity to law enforcement
  • Obstructing justice
  • Eluding
  • Driving without a license
  • Larceny: Unauthorized use of a vehicle

Connor was transported to the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center where he is being held on no bond and additional charges may be pending.  At this time, there are no charges against the passenger in the fleeing vehicle.  

Anyone with additional information who has not already spoken with law enforcement is asked to contact Deputy Evelin Valladares of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office at 703-777-1021.
