Pedestrian, hit by vehicle in Clark County, is seriously injured

Suspect in high-speed chase arrested


A motorcyclist accused of leading Ohio Highway Patrol troopers on a high-speed chase last month pleaded not guilty Wednesday to a charge of failure to comply with the order of a police officer.

Joseph Baylor, 43, was arrested Tuesday night on an outstanding warrant and arraigned Wednesday morning. His bond has been set at $10,000.

On June 23, a speed monitoring plane spotted a motorcycle allegedly speeding on westbound Interstate 70.

According to an OHP report, a trooper on the ground got behind the motorcycle and tried to stop it. The rider took off and exited onto Ohio 72 northbound, turned around at a gas station then went back to I-70 at high speed.

The officer stopped the pursuit when speeds reached 140 mph, according to the report.

The rider was later identified as Baylor, the registered owner of the bike, and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
