Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • An accused is not entitled to an instruction on an offense which is not a lesser included offense of the one with which he or she is charged. While improper driving may be a lesser included offense of reckless driving, Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-869, it is not a lesser included offense of eluding a police officer.
  • Factors a trial court may consider in determining whether a person is subject to “custodial interrogation” are whether a police officer informs the individual that he or she is not under arrest, and whether the individual knows or has been apprised of the nature of the investigation. The trial court may also consider the point at which the suspect becomes the focus of the investigation. In evaluating the various factors, the situation must be viewed from the vantage point of how a reasonable person in the suspect’s position would have understood his situation. On review, the court considers the evidence in the light most favorable to the commonwealth and will affirm the trial court’s findings unless unsupported by the record.
