Defiance man arrested after 19-mile chase by authorities

A Defiance man is facing multiple charges after leading authorities on a 19-mile chase Friday in two counties, deputies say.

Trey Lee Reynolds, 18, is being held without bond in the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio on charges of felony fleeing and eluding, driving under the influence, possession of drug paraphernalia, speeding, reckless operation, and failure to obey a traffic control device, according to the Williams County Sheriff's Office. Additional charges are pending. He also is held on a Fulton County warrant for failure to appear on a felonious assault charge.

The pursuit began at a little before 9 a.m. when a Williams County deputy saw the Reynolds vehicle run the stop light at the intersection of U.S. 6 and State Rt. 2. The driver refused to stop and fled into Defiance County, where sheriff's deputies and state troopers stopped the vehicle by puncturing its tires. He is to appear Monday in Bryan Municipal Court.
