WEATHERSFIELD TWP., Ohio -

A Lordstown man is in the Trumbull County Jail after police say he led them on a twenty-minute chase at speeds reaching 85 miles per hour through Weathersfield, Niles, Lordstown, and  Newton Township.  According to reports, the suspect's car collided with a police cruiser.

Weathersfield Police tried to pull over a car on Carson Salt Springs Road just before 1 a.m. Monday for a previous warrant on a charge of failure to comply with a police order.

Instead of stopping, police say the car sped away.

A sheriff's deputy and other police departments joined the pursuit that took them along Fifth Street, Route 46, Austintown Warren Road, Hallock Young Road, Bailey Road, Ellsworth Road, and Newton Falls Bailey Road.

Police say the car ran a red light, several stop signs, and knocked over a road sign during the chase.

By the time the car reached Newton Falls Bailey Road and Wood Lenhart Road in Newton Township, one of its tires were flat, and the driver jumped out after the car became stuck in a field.

Officers caught up with the suspect in a wooded area and after using a Taser on him, placed him under arrest.

Trevor Griswold, 34, of Lordstown, was booked into the county jail on charges of failure to comply and resisting arrest. He's also likely to face charges of speeding, reckless driving, and stop sign violations.

He'll be video arraigned in Niles Municipal Court.
