According to the OSHP, the RAV4 kept driving despite the trooper’s attempts to conduct a traffic stop. Since the RAV4 was posing a public safety risk and driving irresponsibly, the trooper decided to end the pursuit as it approached Mt. Vernon.

The pursuit was taken up by an OSHP helicopter, which located the RAV4 while it was traveling on Interstate 71 through Delaware and Franklin counties, expanding from Morrow County. Troopers trailed following without activating their sirens as the chopper monitored the vehicle.

Following the RAV4’s exit from I-71 onto southbound State Route 315, troopers attempted to employ stop sticks near the Ackerman Road exit, according to OSHP. But the RAV4 kept going south on SR-315 till it got off onto I-670 West and then back onto I-71 South.

Troopers continued to follow the RAV4 from a distance as the OSHP aircraft followed it on I-71 into Green County. Following its attempted left-hand lane change to avoid more stop sticks, the RAV4 lost control, veered back into the southbound lanes, and collided with the rear end of a 2024 Chevrolet Silverado. After then, the RAV4 veered off the road and came to a complete halt.

The 29-year-old Ft. Lauderdale, Florida resident Tevin Marion was apprehended. Clinton County has filed third-degree felony charges against him for disobeying a police officer’s instruction or signal, while misdemeanor charges include driving without a license, not wearing a seatbelt, and failing to manage the car. A felony failure to cooperate charge was also filed against Marion in Knox County. The Clinton County Jail is currently housing him.

In addition to being wanted on a felony warrant, Marion is facing other charges stemming from several jurisdictions that were engaged in Tuesday’s pursuit.

A male from Ft. Lauderdale, who was 38 years old, was also taken into custody. The individual is not listed with any charges.
