The Williams County Sheriff’s Officer reports that a Michigan man is behind bars following a high-speed chase.
It started just before 2am Saturday when a Williams County deputy saw a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed and headed east on U.S. 20A in Madison Township. The deputy tried to pull the vehicle over, but the driver refused to stop.
During the pursuit, it was found the suspect vehicle had been reported stolen out of Michigan.
With the use of spike strips, officers finally stopped the vehicle on County Road C, just west of the intersection with Ohio 576 in Center Township.
26 year old Stephen Asher of Battle Creek, Mich., was taken into custody and charged with fleeing and eluding a police officer, receiving stolen propert, and numerous traffic offenses. Asher was then locked behind bars at the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio.
The investigation is continuing.
