Officers arrested the 20-year-old driver. Officers reported smelling an odor of alcohol on the suspect. Officers also discovered that the vehicle the suspect was driving was not registered to him.

The suspect was arrested and is now facing charges of OVI and felony fleeing, among other traffic offenses.

He has been taken to the Franklin County jail.

No one was injured during the pursuit or as a result of the crash.

During the chase, officers pursued the suspect vehicle on West Broad Street, Interstate 70, Interstate 270, Hilliard Rome Road, Alton Darby Creek Road and Amity Road. Officers say the suspect also cut through the parking lot of an apartment complex.
