Big rig leads Ohio police on high-speed chase


SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say the driver of a tractor-trailer led officers on a high-speed chase
across northwest Ohio.

Police said the driver of the big rig stopped at a Sandusky convenience store on Sunday night and left
without paying for dog shampoo and other items.

Police say the driver, 61-year-old Ronald Weaver of Tennessee, refused to stop when an officer tried to
pull him over, according to the Sandusky Register ( ).

Weaver then allegedly led dozens of state troopers on a chase through four counties, reaching speeds of
up to 95 mph.

Weaver was arrested when the truck drove into a ditch in Wood County. He was taken to a hospital for
treatment of mental health issues. It wasn’t clear if he had an attorney.
