Police have arrested 24 year-old Julius Kinyata Heckstall of Hampton, Virginia for driving under the influence after leading police on a chase through two cities, hitting two police vehicles and finally crashing into a jersey wall.

Shortly before 1:30am Friday, a Virginia State Trooper observed Heckstall driving a 1997 Mercedes erratically.

The trooper attempted to stop the vehicle near Mallory Street but Heckstall would not stop.

Heckstall led police on a chase through Hampton and into Norfolk.

Heckstall exited the interstate at 4th View Street and hit two State Police vehicles near the intersection of Ocean View Avenue and 4th View Street.

Heckstall continued driving onto I-64 westbound where he crashed into a jersey wall and was apprehended by police.

The troopers that were hit did not sustain injuries and there was minor damage to their vehicles.
