A rural Urbana man was arrested following a high speed pursuit that started in Champaign County and ended on I-75 near Troy Wednesday morning just before five o'clock.
Zachary Titus (pictured), 29, of 4616 Cedar Creek Road, was wanted after a domestic disturbance at his residence early Wednesday.
The Champaign County Sheriff's Office received a 911 call from a screaming child at 3:24 a.m.
The caller said that dad hit mom.
Titus then fled in a '93 Ford Ranger.
Deputies report that Titus's live-in girlfriend had a cut under her right eye, bruising to her arm, and some of her hair was pulled out.
A deputy responding to the scene spotted Titus's pickup on Cedar Creek Road.
At 4:05 a.m., the deputy initiated a traffic stop.
Titus then fled southbound on Route 68 onto I-70 westbound. He then headed north on I-75.
The State Highway Patrol, Huber Heights Police, and Vandalia Police attempted to deploy stop sticks which Titus evaded.
The pursuit entered Troy from I-75 onto State Route 41.
A State Highway Patrol vehicle and a Troy Police vehicle collided during the pursuit. Both officers suffered minor injuries and were treated at an area hospital.
The pursuit continued out of Troy and onto I-75 northbound.
Law enforcement then successfully used stop sticks and took Titus into custody.
He was charged with a third-degree felony count of failure to comply with a police officer.
Titus was lodged in the Tri-County Jail. Further charges are pending.
The pursuit lasted about 45 minutes and reached speeds of up to 100 miles per hour.
