UNION TOWNSHIP, CLERMONT COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

A suspected drunk driver is in custody Friday morning after Clermont County authorities say he led them on a chase for several miles overnight.

Union Township police said they tried to stop a male driver who appeared to be impaired about 12:30 a.m. on Ohio 32 and Newberry Drive.

But the driver sped off, leading officers on a pursuit east along Ohio 32 into neighboring Batavia and nearly into Brown County.

Police stopped chasing the driver, and Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers picked it up.

The driver was taken into custody without further incident just before he reached Mt. Orab.

His name and charges were not released.

No one was hurt.
