A man is in custody after he allegedly kidnapped a woman and led state troopers on a chase that ended in a multi-vehicle crash on I-275.

Gorman, 51, led police on a pursuit onto I-275. OSP troopers were able to box the truck in and the suspect lost control of vehicle on westbound I-275 near Winton Road.  

Gorman was taken into custody after a brief struggle, OSP said.

OSP says several state highway vehicles sustained damage and some troopers sustained minor injuries. 

The female passenger suffered minor injuries from being assaulted by Gorman, police said. 

Gorman is charged with kidnapping, felonious assault, fleeing and eluding and reckless operation. He is now at the Warren County jail and goes to court at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.
