Findlay, Ohio — A Tiffin man was arrested Friday evening after fleeing police officers in Findlay.

At 7:09 p.m., an officer with the Findlay Police Department attempted a traffic stop on a vehicle at the intersection of Milton St. and Hull Ave. for a peeling tires violation.

The driver, 18-year-old Tayshaun S. Tucker, of Tiffin, allegedly failed to stop for police and a short pursuit ensued.

Tucker’s vehicle was unable to maintain control in the 700 block of Carnahan Ave. and left the roadway before striking a posted sign and coming to a stop, according to police.

During a search of Tucker’s vehicle, a loaded firearm was found and seized by police.

According to police, both Tucker and his passenger were released on recognizance bonds, and charges are currently pending.
