New York Man Arrested After 18-Mile Police Chase Starting in Parsippany

PARSIPPANY — A New York man has been apprehended following an 18-mile chase by New Jersey State Police starting in Parsippany early Wednesday morning.

At 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday, December 27, troopers conducted a traffic stop on a black Nissan Altima for a moving violation on Interstate 80 westbound at milepost 43 in Parsippany-Troy Hills.

The driver, later identified as Triston Campbell, a 32-year-old from Brooklyn, initially pulled over on the right shoulder but then fled when the trooper approached the vehicle.

A pursuit ensued, covering approximately 18 miles, until the vehicle ultimately came to a halt on Drake Lane in Roxbury Township.

Campbell was arrested and charged with eluding, obstruction, resisting arrest, and multiple motor vehicle traffic violations.

Campbell is currently in custody at the Morris County Correctional Facility, pending a detention hearing.
