FINDLAY, OH (TiffinOhio.net News) — A Findlay man is facing felony charges after he allegedly threatened employees at Family Resource Center and led cops on a high-speed chase Wednesday morning.

Officers say the man, 52-year-old David D. Luth, drove through the business’s yard and threatened to harm employees. Luth already had an active order from Probate Court for police to take him into custody.

When officers arrived to the scene, Luth took off and drove southbound on North Main Street and refused to pull over for cops.

The pursuit went through the school zones at Glenwood Middle School and the University of Findlay where Luth allegedly hit speeds over 60 mph. Luth then drove over the curb and into a residential yard in the 600 block of Frazer Street where he eventually stopped.

Luth was arrested and booked into the Hancock County Justice Center on a charge of felony fleeing and eluding. Police said Luth will be transferred to a psychiatric hospital for further evaluation.

No one was injured as a result of the pursuit, which covered 1.8 miles, according to police.
