A 45-year-old Bexley man was arrested in Worthington after allegedly using a stolen vehicle to flee from police.
The man was stopped by a Worthington Division of Police officer for a traffic infraction near High Street and Selby Boulevard at noon Feb. 5.
As an officer approached the vehicle, the man fled from the scene. According to reports, the officer did not pursue the man out of "public-safety concerns."
An investigation revealed the vehicle had been reported stolen from a nearby dealership when the man allegedly used false information to take the car for a drive.
