Saturday 1/27

1:15 a.m. Deputies were alerted to a pursuit by Huber Heights Police coming into New Carlisle. One deputy positioned himself at Rt. 235 and Marquart Rd., another at the Chrysler dealership on N. Main St. As the deputy on Marquart was positioning himself, the suspect vehicle passed him at a high rate of speed and he followed it into town. The deputy at the Chrysler dealership set out spike strips. The suspect vehicle hit the spike strips, blew out the front tires, but the vehicle continued into Springfield. At the corner of Champion and Reaper, the vehicle went off the road and crashed. A deputy approached the vehicle with his shotgun drawn and could see a passenger in the rear seat. He ordered the occupants to show their hands, but they refused, instead yelling obscenities at the deputies. Since the vehicle was resting against a tree on the passenger side, the only means of access to the vehicle was on the driver’s side. Deputies believed it dangerous to enter on the driver’s side, since neither occupant would comply with the deputy’s orders to show their hands. The deputy broke the rear window with his shotgun, drew his tazer and again ordered the occupants to show their hands. They refused, so the passenger was tazed. A Huber Heights officer was able to open the door and remove the passenger. As he was removed, a semi-automatic firearm fell out of the vehicle. The passenger was arrested and charged with resisting arrest. The driver was also arrested.
