Eddie Galloway, 31, of Michigan, was charged with failure to comply with the order/signal of a police officer following a traffic stop Thursday, March 16, after officers of the Washington Township Police Department observed his vehicle traveling in excess of 100 mph in 55 mph zone.
Officers on patrol on State Route 274 and State Route 235 about 9:50 p.m. observed his speeding vehicle and activated lights and sirens. However, Galloway reportedly continued to travel eastbound on State Route 274, failing to yield to the officer.
