LIMA - The man who led police on a high-speed chase earlier this year was sentenced Friday to 18 months in prison.



Jesse J. Hardy, 52, was sentenced on the charge of failing to comply with the order or signal of a police officer, a third-degree felony. Judge David Cheney also suspended Hardy’s driver’s license for three years.



The chase, Feb. 12, began in Allen County. An officer tried to stop Hardy for a turn signal violation in Lima at 3:38 a.m. Hardy fled. Lima Police eventually ended the chase after it became dangerous, with speeds reaching 80 mph inside the city.



A state trooper spotted Hardy’s vehicle about 12 minutes later on Interstate 75 and tried to pull him over. Hardy fled, reaching speeds of 110 mph.



Another state trooper deployed stop sticks to flatten Hardy’s front tires. Hardy continued to drive his vehicle on the rims. Hardy finally pulled over, but officers had to remove him from the vehicle after he refused to exit.
