The Delaware State Police arrested 37-year-old Kevin Jasovsky of Bel Air, Maryland for DUI and assaulting police officers after a crash that occurred yesterday in Milton.

On August 7, 2023, at approximately 9:27 p.m., a trooper on patrol came across a black Nissan Pathfinder that had just struck a construction barrier next to the left lane of Coastal Highway south of Broadkill Road. The Nissan had also struck a fully marked Delaware River & Bay Authority (DRBA) Police Department Chevrolet Tahoe, and the police officer that had been driving the Tahoe was trying to contact the driver of the Nissan. The trooper also tried to contact the driver, but he refused to get out of the Pathfinder and tried to drive away. Both the trooper and the DRBA officer were able to get the driver out of the vehicle and take him to the ground. Once on the ground, the driver physically resisted arrest and injured both the officer and the trooper.

The driver, identified as Kevin Jasovsky, was taken into custody after a brief struggle. The trooper smelled alcohol coming from Jasovsky, who displayed signs of impairment. Both the trooper and Jasovsky were taken to an area hospital for treatment, and both were released later in the evening.

While Jasovsky was at the hospital he was charged with the following crimes:

  • Assault Second Degree of a Law Enforcement Officer (Felony)
  • Offensive Touching of a Law Enforcement Officer
  • Resisting Arrest
  • Driving Under the Influence
  • Traffic offenses

Jasovsky was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Court 3 and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $12,325 cash bond.
