On Tuesday, March 21, 2023, at 8:06 p.m. Sidney Police Department patrol units were involved in a vehicle pursuit that started on I-75 northbound near the 93 mile marker.
The suspect vehicle, registered out of Alabama, was observed committing a traffic infraction. When the officer attempted to stop the vehicle it sped up in an attempt to elude. Two units from the Sidney PD along with units from the Sheriff’s departments and Ohio State Patrol were involved with the pursuit.

Upon losing control the driver was immediately taken into custody as the passenger fled on foot into a wooded area. With the assistance from an Ohio State Patrol air support unit the fleeing suspect was taken into custody.
