A Milford man has been arrested after leading Delaware State Police on a chase in a stolen car.  Police tried to stop a vehicle around 1:20 Saturday morning on Route 36 for a burned out headlight.  However the driver, 30 year old Andree Mansfield, refused to stop – blowing through red lights and driving in a reckless manner before turning into the Royal Farms parking lot in Harbeson where he refused to get out of the car and threatened that he had a gun.  Police were able to arrest Mansfield and learned the car was stolen from Bridgeville and that he had active warrants for violating a PFA earlier that night.  A search of the vehicle turned up a kitchen knife with a 5-inch blade.  Mansfield faces multiple charges and is being held at SCI in default of an over $10,000 cash only bond.
