Bellevue man arrested after chase in 2 counties

FREMONT - A Bellevue, Ohio, man was arrested yesterday after allegedly leading police agencies on a chase through Sandusky and Seneca counties at speeds up to 120 mph.

Ryan Herner, 28, was charged with felony fleeing and eluding, operating a motor vehicle under the influence, driving under suspension, obstruction, and speeding.

Bond of $36,000 was set during a hearing in Fremont Municipal Court, but Mr. Herner remained held without bond last night in the Sandusky County jail on a separate charge of violating his probation for a drunken-driving conviction.

The Ohio Highway Patrol said a trooper began chasing a car that failed to stop when he activated his lights and sirens about 2:30 a.m. on County Road 20 in Ballville Township.

The car sped west on U.S. 20 through Bellevue, then south on State Rt. 269 and southwest on State Rt. 4 to U.S. 224 near Attica, where it was halted about 3 a.m. by devices placed on the road that flattened the vehicle's front tires.

The driver jumped and ran but was apprehended a short time later, troopers said.
