A New Castle man was to be charged with several counts after he allegedly fled a DUI checkpoint at an extremely high speed early Sunday morning.
State Police officials in Jackson Center say 30 year-old Matthew Schleh raced through their checkpoint in Pine Township outside of Grove City at about 100 miles per hour at 12:15 AM Sunday. Reports indicate that six troopers and a Mercer County public safety director were forced to scatter for safety.
Police say they halted Schleh’s vehicle about a half-mile away by using “stop sticks.” Schleh was reportedly arrested at a Grove City Laundromat.
Charges are to include multiple counts of aggravated assault, simple assault and reckless endangerment.
