At 8:36 a.m. on Saturday, while on routine patrol, Delphos Police observed a full-sized pick-up truck driving in a reckless and dangerous manner, almost causing two separate accidents in a very short time.

Delphos Police activated their overhead lights to stop the vehicle but the driver, identified as Christopher A. Swann, 28, of Delphos, sped away from the scene, leading Delphos units on a high-speed pursuit through the city of Delphos and out into rural Allen County.

As the pursuit went on, the vehicle left the roadway several times, causing damage to road signs and property. As the pursuit neared the City of Lima, Delphos Police stopped the pursuit for officers‘ and public safety due to the increasingly aggressive and reckless driving of Swann.

Prior to officers stopping the pursuit, got the vehicle’s license plate number a visual identification of the driver. Several hours later, officers located Swann as he had returned to the city limits of Delphos and took into custody without further incident.

Swann was transported to the Allen County Jail and will appear in court on the charge of failure to comply with order or signal of a police officer, a felony of the third degree.
