Ohio State Highway Patrol officials say they tried to pull a driver over around 3 a.m. on December 19 on south High Street, just south of Interstate 270.

The suspect ran a red light and then stopped, only to take off seconds later, according to authorities.

Officers scrambled to lay down ‘stop sticks’ to slow him down, but the driver took off from the scene.

The car blew a tire more than five minutes into the pursuit, but showed no signs of slowing down.

Officers state that the man was “starting to play chicken with these big trucks.”

The driver finally comes to a stop near state Route 317 after he had reached speeds of 120 miles per hour.

The pursuit slows to a crawl before the driver finally comes to a stop near state Route 317 and Rohr Road.

Officers surround the vehicle guns drawn, and the suspect surrenders after 25 minutes on the run.

Troopers took the man into custody and discover his name is Paul Serratt.

Sarrat appears amused when a WBNS 10TV news photographer arrives on the scene.

“The news is here. You going to be on TV,” he said.

Sarratt faced a judge the next day on charges including OVI, reckless operation, and resisting arrest. 

He posted bond and was free the next day. Sarratt is set to appear in court later this month.
