A Findlay man was arrested Wednesday after a 1.8-mile pursuit that began at the Family Resource Center, 2515 N. Main St., and ended in a yard on Frazer Street.

At 7:38 a.m., police received a call about a man driving through the yard at the Family Resource Center and threatening employees. The suspect, David D. Luth, 52, was also wanted on a probate court order.

Luth drove south onto Main Street when officers arrived, the Findlay police department said.

Officers tried to stop him, but he fled down Main Street, committing several traffic violations, police said. Luth sped through the school zone for Glenwood Middle School, then went left of center and drove through a red light at Trenton Avenue, according to police.

He turned west onto Frazer Street, driving nearly 60 mph through the University of Findlay school zone, before driving over a curb into a yard in the 600 block and finally stopping.

He was arrested for fleeing and eluding police, a felony, and taken to the Hancock County jail.

Authorities planned to transfer him to a psychiatric hospital for evaluation.

No one was injured during the chase.
