Police: OVI dad leads officers on chase with daughter in car

WESTWOOD, OH (FOX19) - A Westwood father faces several charges after police say he fled and drove under the influence of alcohol with his 7-year-old daughter in the car.

Terron Cornelison, 27, is held without bond at the Hamilton County jail on several charges including child endangering.

Cincinnati police said they arrested Cornelison early Sunday after a brief chase on Boudinot Avenue.

When police caught up with his black, 2009 Honda Civic near his apartment on Westbrook Drive at 1:38 a.m. Sunday, they said Cornelison was “visibly impaired” and “belligerent.”

He refused to take a chemical test and operated a vehicle under the influence of alcohol with his 7 (year-old) daughter in the vehicle, police wrote in court records.

In addition to child endangering, Cornelison also is charged with operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol; refusal of chemical test, failure to reinstate license and driving under a suspended license, records state.

He’s also facing a robbery charge, police say.

Before the police chase, Cornelison threatened and injured an off-duty officer, and attempted to take the officer’s cell phone, police said.

The officer got their phone back, and that’s when Cornelison took off, records show.

He was arrested less than a mile down the road.

There is no word yet on how the officer is doing.
