Before sunrise on Friday morning, Springfield Police were pursuing a vehicle that ran a red light until it culminated in the arrest of a man believed to be from Newark.  Sources indicate the driver is Michael Rutledge and has a history of trouble with the law.  The driver led police on a car chase that didn’t last long before the 26-year old hit a tree behind The Cove apartment complex and was arrested.  During the chase, Rutledge crashed into two police vehicles.

Rutledge was driving a rental vehicle and was arrested with a stolen, loaded 9 mm handgun.  Police charged him with a number of crimes to included eluding, driving under the influence, assault and drug possession.  Rutledge is reported to have associations with the “Sex Money Murder” set of the Bloods gang.  Documents indicated he was arrested previously and charges include racketeering, unlawful possession of firearms and distribution of controlled dangerous substances.  Rutledge is due in Union County Superior Court at the end of the month.
