WOOSTER, OH (WOIO) - A 37-year-old man led police on a chase overnight in a stolen box truck.

Butler will be arraigned Thursday on charges of failure to comply, obstructing official business, resisting restraint, aggravated menacing, and aggravated robbery.

He is currently in the Wayne County Jail.
