City of Waynesboro Police Department Press Release

The Waynesboro Police Department has arrested a Waynesboro man on numerous charges after an overnight vehicle pursuit and crash. Page Douglas Napier II, 36 years old, is charged with three felonies: DUI/3rd offense in ten years, operating a vehicle in reckless manner while having a suspended/DUI-related license and eluding; and one misdemeanor, refusal of a breath test.

Just after midnight, an officer observed a 2013 Honda Accord traveling nearly 30 mph over the 35 mph speed limit on Rosser Avenue near 13th Street. When the officer attempted to stop the vehicle, it accelerated. The officer pursued the vehicle on several streets near the downtown area. Near the intersection of E Main Street & Delphine Avenue, the vehicle, which was traveling east, lost control when it attempted to pass another eastbound vehicle on the right. This caused the vehicle to cross into westbound lanes of travel striking a curb, which sent it airborne. It came to rest on a foot and half concrete wall. Napier was immediately arrested without incident. He was unhurt but the vehicle was totaled.

While officers were still working the crash scene, another motorist approached them indicating he had witnessed Napier speeding and driving erratically near Walmart.

As of 8:30 AM this morning, Napier was still too intoxicated to have a bond hearing. He is being held at MRRJ.
