A trooper from the Lebanon Post attempted to pull over Sneed around 12:50 a.m. on Interstate 75 North near the 32 mile marker in Middletown for a traffic violation. Sneed reportedly pulled off to the right and stopped. As the trooper approached his car, he fled, prompting a chase, according to OSHP.

Speeds surpassed 150 mph before the trooper terminated the pursuit.

Around 1:01 a.m., another trooper saw the suspect vehicle further north on the highway and another chase began. Speeds reach over 150 mph again before the trooper ended the chase, according to OSHP.

At 1:15 a.m., Moraine police contacted OSHP’s Dayton post about a crash involving the suspect vehicle. Sneed reportedly ran away from the crash, but was found.

Dayton Fire and EMS took Sneed to Miami Valley Hospital for treatment of minor injuries. He was released and booked into the Warren County Jail.
