A New Albany man was arrested March 26 and charged with failure to comply with the order of a police officer after speeding away from a traffic stop.

The incident began about 10:10 p.m. when an officer observed the man's car stopped on Cambridge Boulevard with extensive front end damage and no working headlights. The man told police he had been involved in an accident earlier and was trying to get the car back to his mother's house in Upper Arlington.

During the routine driving/registration check, it was discovered the license plate on the vehicle belonged to the man's father and was registered to another vehicle. The driver was issued a citation for unauthorized use of plates and advised not to drive the vehicle.

As the officer was driving away, the man sped from the scene. The officer followed him, turning on his lights and siren. The pursuit continued from Cambridge onto Bedford Road. The driver ran several stop signs before his vehicle finally became disabled at Barrington and Waltham roads. He was ordered out of the vehicle and taken into custody.
