KENTON — Two persons from Logan County were arrested Monday after fleeing from Hardin County deputies.
According to a statement from the Hardin County Sheriff’s Office, a deputy attempted to conduct a traffic stop on state Route 235 near Township Road 140 in Roundhead Township at approximately 6:18 p.m. Monday on a vehicle that was traveling south at a high rate of speed and drifting left of center. When the deputy activated the emergency lights and siren the vehicle failed to stop and continued to drive at high rates of speed and recklessly on state and county roads. The vehicle was eventually stopped at 6:27 p.m. near the intersection of county roads 75 and 110.
The driver, Andrea Stephens of Logan County, was taken into custody for no operator’s license, failure to comply with the order or signal of a police officer, vandalism and possession of drugs, as well as numerous other traffic violations. Stephens refused medical transport and was taken to the Multi County Jail to await arraignment.
A passenger in the vehicle, Shawn Stevens of Logan County, was taken into custody on an unrelated warrant.
