DAYTON, OH (FOX19) - A 45-minute police chase sent officers across two counties before they arrested two men on Oct. 18.

Lawrence Conley, 21, was clocked going 99 mph in a 65 mph zone which sparked the multi-county chase. The Dayton man refused to stop for police when first signaled on I-75 in Warren County.

The chase would take troopers into Montgomery County where Conley's white Camaro got off at Edwin C. Moses Blvd. After exiting the interstate, Dayton police would join the back half of the chase through city streets.

During the pursuit the OSHP cruiser running point was bumped multiple times by Conley's vehicle and passenger 19-year-old Shemar Moore is believed to have tossed a gun out the window of the moving vehicle.

Dayton police located the weapon as the chase continued.

Eventually, the OSHP would end the chase near the corner of Keowee and 3rd Street.

According to a release from OSHP, the "cruiser initiated intentional contact to stop the fleeing vehicle."

In the video, sparks flew from the Camaro as the cruiser brought the car to a stop. Then officer exited their vehicle and off-camera, OSHP said three occupants of the vehicle were secured without further incident.

The third passenger was a female who was not charged and released at the scene.

Conley is facing charges of fleeing and eluding, carrying a concealed weapon, driving under suspension and reckless operation.

Moore is facing charges of carrying a concealed weapon, possession of heroin and possession of drug abuse instruments.

Both are being held at the Warren County Jail.
