Dublin police issued warrants for the arrest of a 23-year-old Columbus man after he fled from police April 1.

An officer stopped in traffic on the ramp from Interstate 270 South to Tuttle Crossing Boulevard at 8:41 a.m. April 1, observed a vehicle whose registered owner had a suspended driver’s license, according to the report.

After both the police officer and the motorist turned east on Tuttle Crossing Boulevard, the officer activated the overhead lights to stop the driver who turned south on Blazer Parkway and appeared as if he would stop at the parking lot of a gas station, according to the report.

Instead, the driver sped away, police said.

The officer did not pursue the driver but issued warrants for driving under a court suspension, failure to reinstate and failure to comply with the order of a police officer.
