SOUTH PORTLAND — Overnight, South Portland police arrested a 30-year-old with a history of suspended driving after calling off a chase through the city’s streets.

Sgt. Paul Lambert tried to pull over a truck on Broadway at 1 a.m. this morning but the driver refused to stop, police said. The truck ran a stop sign on Preble Street and sped off, leading the officer to call off the pursuit, police said.

Other officers converged on the area and Derek Hill was caught fleeing on foot. He had left the truck on Elsmere Avenue, police said.

Hill was charged with operating after suspension, failure to stop for an officer and refusing to submit to arrest, police said.

Hill has six prior license suspensions since 2000, was convicted of reckless driving in 1999 and operating after suspension in 2008.

Hill was released on his own recognizance pending a future court appearance.
