HARRISON, OH (FOX19) -
Three suspects involved in a 55 mile police chase that spanned three states Tuesday afternoon have been arrested.
Regional Narcotics Unit agents attempted to pull over a vehicle for traffic violations on Interstate 75 in Lincoln Heights, according to Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Neil.
Police said after the vehicle refused to be pulled over, officers chased the car down I-75 through Cincinnati and into Northern Kentucky.
For part of the chase, a helicopter tracked the car while cruisers stayed back to attempt to track the suspects during the chase. Northern Kentucky agencies then observed the vehicle and initiated a pursuit on southbound I-75 and westbound I-275.
The car traveled into Indiana on I-275 and back into Ohio before exiting onto Kilby Road in Hamilton County. The vehicle eventually stopped at the Skyline Chili parking lot on Harrison Avenue, where the three suspects were taken into custody, according to authorities.
The driver, Anthony Dewayne Knight, 24, of Dayton, Ohio, was arrested and charged with felony fleeting and eluding in Ohio and faces felony charges in Kentucky.
Jehwaun Booker, 22, of Dayton, Ohio, and Chucky Foley, 19, of Trotwood, Ohio, were both arrested on outstanding warrants. They have gang ties to Montgomery County, police said.
Booker took videos of the chase inside the car and posted them to social media, police said. The sheriff's department release the cell phone video which shows a cruiser with its lights on outside the back window.
"We appreciate the suspects video taping. That will help us with our evidence," said Hamilton County Sheriff Chief Mark Schoonover.
Police found a handgun and a small amount of marijuana in the rental vehicle.
A fourth occupant in the vehicle was released without any charges.
No accidents or injuries were reported during the pursuit.
