MIDDLEBURG HEIGHTS, OH (WOIO) - Middleburg Heights Police say they chased a suspect on I-71 that ended with a crash and an arrest.

According to police, a suspect led police on a chase around midnight Sunday.

The chase begins when the driver of a Saturn left a Speedway gas station on Bagley Road. The officer turned on his overhead lights after realizing there was an active felony warrant out for the owner of the car, Timmy G. Chambers.

Headed towards Cleveland on I-71 North the driver can be seen weaving in and out of traffic.
