Honesdale man arrested for fleeing police


April 17, 2013

On April 16th, 2013 the Honesdale Borough Police obtained an arrest warrant for Nikolas Reeder, 21 from Honesdale, for fleeing in his vehicle from a borough officer trying to conduct a traffic stop.

According to borough police, on Saturday, April 13th, at approximately 5:21 pm., a borough officer observed Reeder driving westbound on Rt. 6 near Wayne Memorial Hospital. The officer was aware that Reeder had a suspended driver’s license.

When the officer attempted to initiate a traffic stop on the vehicle near Maple Ave, Reeder failed to stop. The officer pursued Reeder a short distance but terminated the pursuit because of Reeder’s’ disregard for other drivers on the roadway.

Reeder was arrested by PSP Honesdale on Sunday (04-14-2013) on unrelated charges and was incarcerated in the Wayne County Correctional Facility.

On April 16th, 2013 Reeder was afforded a preliminary arraignment before Magistrate Bonnie Carney. He was charged with Fleeing and Eluding Police, graded as a felony of the 3rd degree, Recklessly endangering another person, graded as a misdemeanor, and several summary vehicle code violations.

After failing to post $5,000.00 bail Reeder was returned to the Wayne County Correctional Facility awaiting central court scheduled on April 24th, 2013.
