Police from the Sully District have apprehended a Centreville area man, believed to have been driving under the influence of drugs, after a series of incidents that began around 1 a.m. on Tuesday, April 5. The suspect is identified as 28-year-old Luis Caballos.
Officers were called to a home in the 14500 block of Lock Drive for a report of disorderly behavior. A man reportedly set fire to several items in the home, punched out a window and locked himself in the bathroom. After police arrived, the suspect fled, driving erratically in a Volkswagon, hitting a fence at the Chantilly National Golf Club.
Minutes later, Caballos hit a car on Route 28 North, near I-66, police said. A 29-year-old man suffered injuries and was taken to the hospital. Caballos’ vehicle, though heavily damaged, continued towards I-66 East, where police said it then struck an officerâ€™s cruiser twice. No one was injured.
Virginia State Police assisted officers in attempting to stop Caballos. His vehicle came to a stop at Route 7100, where he then got out of the car and allegedly became combative. A conductive energy device was used and Caballos was taken into custody at 1:37 a.m. I-66 was closed for approximately a half hour due to the investigation.
Caballos is being held without bond at the Adult Detention Center where he is being held without bond. Charges against him include: arson of an occupied dwelling, hit and run, simple assault on a law enforcement officer, disregarding a police command to stop, malicious wounding, intentionally damaging property and driving while impaired.
