Havelock man facing multiple charges after police chase

A Havelock man was arrested last week after leading law enforcement on a slow chase from Cape Carteret to Havelock.

Kevin Andrew Arje, 33, of Havelock, has two sets of charges against him. The Cape Carteret Police Department has charged Arje with exceeding the posted speed limit, driving on a revoked license, resist, obstruct and delay of an officer, and failure to yield to blue light and siren.

Havelock Police have charged Arje with felony speeding to elude arrest, driving while license revoked, careless and reckless driving, and failure to maintain lane control.

Officer Joshua Hayden of Cape Carteret said Arje was driving a 2010 Kia passenger car when he was observed speeding on N.C. 24 at about 8:45 p.m. on July 30.

Hayden, who was patrolling in a marked patrol car with fellow officer Bill McKinney, said he turned on his blue lights but Arje failed to stop.

Arje never went more than 65 mph in the chase that went east on N.C. 24 and then up Nine Mile Road and Lake Road to Havelock.

Havelock Police deployed two sets of Stop Sticks on Lake Road and the intersection of Lake Road and Miller Boulevard. The sticks shredded Arje’s two front tires, but he continued to drive on Miller Boulevard and U.S. 70 through Havelock and back into Carteret County, Hayden said.
