An Upper Darby man was arrested Thursday after he nearly mowed down a police officer during a traffic stop. Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said Upper Darby cops pulled over Michael Marva about 3:45 p.m., after he made an illegal left turn on Garrett Road.

Marva, 26, tried to run over Officer William Tully, who managed to escape injury, and then sped along Baltimore Avenue into Philly, Chitwood said. The chase ended at Avenue and Cobbs Creek Park, where Marva’s car spun out of control. Police found several bags of heroin in his car, Chitwood said.

Marva, who is from Long Lane near Sansom Street, was charged with aggravated assault, reckless driving and related offenses.
