A 19-year-old Career Criminal

If he had died in this chase, his family would have demanded answers, and there would have been calls for Justice. As it is, we can only hope he gets a bit of Justice.

Police chases can be interesting, but when they happen close enough to home that you can recognize all of the landmarks, they are awesome.

This one starts not too far from where I used to live, 20 years ago or so, and continues past landmarks I see once a month or so. I'm not sure that it is interesting in its own right, aside from that making it interesting to me..

So back at the end of January, there was a high speed chase, through suburban Cincinnati. Police: Teens' crime spree ended in high-speed chase down I-71

Starting in Montgomery, swinging through Kenwood, and eventually ending on the Freeway in Warren County, in South Lebanon, Ohio. But the driver started much earlier than that.

Driver Jeremiah Jackson, 19, was arrested on the scene and faces six charges in Hamilton County alone: Three counts of receiving stolen property, one count of misusing a stolen credit card, one count of failing to comply with police orders, and a final count of criminal damaging.

By the time of his arrest, he was already wanted in Franklin County, where he was accused of stealing a car, and in Logan County, where authorities said he stole another car and struck a police cruiser during a chase.

The Mercedes-Benz in the video below was stolen. Are you shocked?

Here is the video of the entire chase: Amazing High Speed 100MPH Police Chase Cop Dash Cam Video in Cincinnati Ohio near Kings Island. It is also embedded below. 12 minutes of chase, and about that much of aftermath. At about 9 minutes and 45 seconds in, you can catch a glimpse of the roller-coasters at King's Island amusement park, off to the right, which is mentioned in the title to the video.

If you don't have the stomach for a 12 minute car chase, here is the 2 minute "highlights reel" from a local news station. It has all the particulars.
