COSHOCTON COUNTY, Ohio – Charges are pending against a semi-truck driver after he lead authorities on a dangerous chase through eight Ohio counties.
It happened Monday afternoon when the Ohio State Highway Patrol attempted to pullover Stephen Wolfe in Wyandot County for not displaying company markings on the vehicle.
Wolfe is accused of taking off leading authorities on a chase lasting more than two and a half hours before ending in Coshocton County.
Authorities followed Wolfe from both the ground and in the air.
Deputies deployed stop sticks at several locations along the highway, causing the tires to deflate. Wolfe continued the chase even though his front tires were gone.
The chase ended on Pleasant Valley at Pareson when he took off on foot.
Detectives from the Coshocton County Sheriff’s Office and Licking County Deputies were able to locate the suspect in a home on Evergreen Park Dr. and took him into custody.
Stephen Wolfe is being held at the Coshocton County Justice Center. He faces multiple charges including felonious assault, failure to comply and receiving stolen property.
Multiple agencies assisted OSP with this pursuit, including the Coshocton County Sheriff’s Office, Licking County Sheriff’s Office, Coshocton County EMA, REACT, and Prince’s Wrecker Service.
This incident remains under investigation.
