BOND HILL - A motorist faces several charges after police say he led them on a chase from Elmwood Place into Vine Street early Tuesday.

Antonio Reid, 50, of Carthage, is being booked into the Hamilton County jail on several charges including felony fleeing and eluding, resisting arrest and obstructing official business, said Elmwood Place Police Officer Justin Habig.

Officers began chasing Reid's gray Cadillac just after 3 a.m. after he fled a minor traffic offense on Vine Street at Blade Avenue.

The driver sped west into neighboring Bond Hill, where the chase ensued down Reading Road and onto Avonlea Avenue by 3:13 a.m.

At one point, the Cadillac crashed into several parked cars but kept going. 

As more officers swarmed the area to join the chase, police reported what they believed to be gunshots coming from the driver, who was the only one in the car, Habig said.

No officers were hurt.

"We believe shots were fired. We have not recovered a weapon. I can confirm that law enforcement did not fire any shots," he said.

Police are still investigating and searching the area for shell casings.

The chase ended when Reid bailed from the car and ran off. An officer shocked him in the back with a Taser stun gun, but he kept running. 

He was apprehended nearby shortly after and has Taser barb wires on his back.
