Chillicothe Police reported a Thursday pursuit where speeds reached 100mph.
Police have identified the suspected driver in a high-speed chase that occurred in Chillicothe, early Thursday morning. According to a police report, an officer saw Timothy Pettit driving an SUV with expired plates that were registered to another vehicle. The officer tried to conduct a stop on East Main Street, but Pettit reportedly drove through East Main Street and Charleston Pike at speeds over 100mph, crossing the double-yellow center lines and almost crashing numerous times.
The officer said he ended the chase because the driver had been identified and there was a high risk of a crash.
Authorities indicated that they were unable to find the driver and vehicle, but the case will be forwarded to the prosecutor's office for a possible indictment on charges of felony failure to comply.
In June, the same officer was involved in the arrest of Pettit for an attempted theft at Tractor Supply.
