ZANESVILLE – A man in a 90’s big body classic Camaro ran from multiple departments in Muskingham county today.
The chase started on Maple Avenue in Zanesville around 2:30 pm today when a officer attempted to stop the driver for driving erratically. According to Ohio Highway Police, during the pursuit, the driver turned onto State Route 60, where he was seen throwing money out the window of the car. The man then tried to elude police by pulling into a dollar general where police surrounded the Camaro. The man then desperate to escape rammed a police car and hit another, then somehow avoided capture. The suspect turned back onto State Route 60, where he was finally caught around the areas of Ash meadows drive after a semi-truck became pivotal in stopping the car when the suspect tried to drive around the truck but slid into a ditch getting his classic car stuck.
Highway Patrol was then able to arrest the man without issues.
